Elvis Presley is one of America’s greatest rock-and-roll stars. He became a music legend before reaching the ripe age of 25 and by the age of 30, Presley had become one of the highest paid performers in music history. After his untimely death at the age of 42, the music and legacy of Elvis Presley lives on.
Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion is open to the public and is one of the most visited private homes in America. During our wedding anniversary trip in Memphis, Tennessee, my husband and I went on a Graceland Tour.
The audio tour guides you through the living room, his parent’s bedroom, dining room, TV room, billiards room and the famous Jungle Room. It then takes you outside to see other parts of the estate, including Lisa Marie Presley’s swing set, his father Vernon Presely’s office, the horse paddock and Elvis’s racquetball building. You walk through the Trophy Room that houses an incredible collection of records, jumpsuits and memorabilia, and see the piano where Elvis played his very last song on the day he died.
The tour of Elvis Presley’s Graceland Mansion ends with a visit to the Meditation Garden where Elvis and members of his family have been laid to rest.
A simple description of Elvis’s Graceland Mansion wouldn’t do it justice, so here are some the pictures I took while on the tour.
