Graceland


Dear England, Here's Elvis's home that he bought for $100,000 in 1957 when Elvis was just 20! It's a beautiful plot of land, and the house isn't too showy, but a place that gives off a genuine air when you visit it - not what most people would expect. The gravesite is particular with "If I Can Dream" playing in the background is a moving experience.

Today the rooms - the famous TV room and jungle room - are also preserved as they were in the 70s. Of course there's a toursity side to Graceland but somehow it doesn't overpower the genuine memorial to Elvis it is today (it might be the Memphis heat). But you can even get married at Graceland. Long live the King!
