Mansion Pays Tribute to the King of Rock N' Roll
If you only make one stop in Memphis, it should be here: the sublimely kitschy, gloriously bizarre home of the King of Rock and Roll. Though born in Mississippi, Elvis Presley was a true son of Memphis, raised in the Lauderdale Courts public housing projects, inspired by blues clubs on Beale St, and discovered at Sun Studio. In the spring of 1957, the already-famous 22-year-old spent $100,000 on a Colonial-style mansion, named Graceland by its previous owners. The King himself had the place, ahem, redecorated in 1974. With a 15ft couch, fake waterfall, yellow vinyl walls and green shag-carpet ceiling, it's a virtual textbook of ostentatious '70s style. You'll begin your tour at the brand-spanking new $45 million entertainment complex and visitor center, Elvis Presley's Memphis, on the other side of Elvis Presley Blvd, which now houses Presley's car museum and additional exhibits that run an extra $18.75 for adults. Tack on $5 extra to access two custom planes. Book ahead in the busy season to ensure a prompt tour time. The basic self-guided mansion tour comes with an engaging multimedia iPad narration by John Stamos. Priscilla Presley opened Graceland to tours in 1982, and now millions come here to pay homage to the King, who died here from heart failure in 1977. Throngs of fans still weep at his grave, next to the swimming pool out back. Graceland is 9 miles south of downtown on US 51, also called 'Elvis Presley Blvd.' A free shuttle runs from Sun Studio. Parking costs $10.
