I’m not a fan of Elvis Presley’s music or movies, but after visiting Graceland, I’m now a huge fan of the man himself — or should I say, The King.
Elvis’ mansion, museum and tour are very well done. You get a much greater sense of the vulnerable human being behind the superstar we all know.
Elvis was a global sensation long before the Internet, but he was also a generous philanthropist, a warm loving father, and a big kid who loved to drive anything with wheels. Here we see his rec room where the wall and ceiling are lined with hundreds of yards of custom fabric.
Even decades later, Elvis’ grave is lined with flowers from his many fans. Elvis is buried alongside his father, mother and grandmother.
We toured his car museum that included the famous pink Cadillac Elvis purchased for his mother Gladys as a gift.
Elvis had a private jet he named after his only child, daughter Lisa Marie.
