Graceland — Google
No. 1 Tourist Attraction
No trip to Memphis would be complete without visiting
Graceland — the mansion where Elvis Presley lived, loved…and
The historic home of the King of Rock 'n Roll is the city's top
tourist attraction — every year, over 600,000 people pass
through its doors. Graceland is situated approximately 8 miles
south of downtown Memphis.
Elvis Presley Boulevard
What surprised us most about our visit to Graceland was its location — it
is right off a main street,
" Elvis Presley Boulevard." We expected it to be in a much more
secluded area — then again, it probably was during the time Elvis moved
in. He bought the home in 1957 for $103,000 after the
release of "Heartbreak Hotel."
Elvis Aaron Presley
January 8, 1935 -

Visit the Meditation Garden at Graceland, where Elvis
and his family members have been laid to rest.
Graceland was first opened to the public in June 1982 and has been on
the National Register of Historic Places since 1991. It became a National
Historic Landmark on
March 27, 2006.
Plan on spending at least one full day at Graceland,
although if your time is limited, you could probably see everything
in 3-4 hours. There's a lot to see and it's more fun when you can
really take your time and not rush.
Special Times to Visit Graceland
Special times to visit Graceland are in January, August and December.
