Graceland | Tennessee Vacation

Graceland

Get an intimate glimpse into the personal life of Elvis Presley with a pilgrimage to Graceland, the most famous rock ‘n’ roll residence in the world. Set on a 13.8-acre estate in Memphis, the Colonial Revival-style mansion with majestic white columns was a cherished place where Elvis created countless memories with friends and loved ones for more than 20 years. Today, it is a must-visit Tennessee attraction, drawing more than 600,000 visitors every year who wish to experience the life and legacy of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

At Graceland Mansion, explore the personal side of Elvis Presley and see where he played, relaxed and spent time with family and friends. The Graceland Mansion tour is iPad-guided and it leads you through the house and grounds to explore the living room, his parents’ bedroom, the kitchen, TV room, pool room, the famous Jungle Room, his father’s office, the trophy building and the racquetball building, which is being fully-restored to the way it looked in 1977. The final stop is a quiet walk through Meditation Garden where Elvis and his family are laid to rest.

On March 2, 2017, Graceland will open Elvis Presley’s Memphis, the most significant enhancement to Graceland since the historic home opened to the public in 1982. The all-new, 200,000 square foot entertainment complex will offer a fully-immersive Elvis and pop culture experience to celebrate the most popular entertainer of all time. While the Graceland Mansion Tour will continue to present the personal side of Elvis’ life, across the street at Elvis Presley’s Memphis, guests will enjoy exciting and engaging exhibitions, attractions and an entirely new visitor experience, showcasing Elvis’ incredible recording, live touring and movie career. Visit both Graceland Mansion and Elvis Presley’s Memphis to fully experience the story of the greatest entertainer of all time.

In addition, Elvis Presley’s Memphis will offer two new restaurant experiences: Vernon’s Smokehouse, a barbeque restaurant offering legendary Memphis BBQ fare; and Gladys Diner, a ‘50s diner offering a broad variety of classic American cuisine and Elvis favorites.
