We Went to Graceland:)

We are not die hard elvis fans but when in must see Graceland!  It was very interesting.  In addition to seeing the mansion, there are several smaller museums in the complex filled with tons of Elvis memorabilia.  It was fun to look at license plates in the parking lot as they were from all over the country and Canada.

Here is a quickie tour of Graceland:

Living Room

Dining Room


Media Room with mirrored ceiling

Pool Room with fabric walls-it took 10 days of work to cover the walls in this fabric

half of the Den or, as it has become known, the Jungle Room
A small museum behind the house holds a lot of his awards:
150 gold records plus hundreds of other awards....

including the 6 Grammys Elvis received for his gospel songs

 His racquet ball court has been turned into an additional trophy room:

 To the left of the house, in the Memorial Garden, are the graves of Elvis and his parents

birthday gift to Pricilla

Elvis favorite car,  last driven by him the day he died
