Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee

Graceland in Memphis,Tennessee

Walk in the footsteps of the King of Rock'n'Roll at Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee. Elvis' life story started in Tupelo, Mississippi but at Graceland you will go on an exciting journey that takes you through Elvis' humble beginnings and his rise to superstardom!

When you step inside of Elvis’ Graceland Mansion, you will enjoy an audio-guided tour featuring commentary and stories by Elvis and his daughter, Lisa Marie. Inside Graceland Mansion, see Elvis’ living room, dining room, kitchen, TV room, pool room and the famous jungle room. Also, while on the mansion grounds, tour Elvis’ father’s office, the racquetball building and Elvis’ trophy building, which includes his enormous collection of gold and platinum awards, movie memorabilia, stagewear and more. The mansion portion of the tour ends with a quiet visit to Meditation Garden, where Elvis and his family members have been laid to rest. The Graceland audio tour is available in English, Spanish, German, Italian, French, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese and Dutch.

After you tour Graceland Mansion, visit the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum. Stroll down a tree-lined street with a drive-in theatre and see over 33 vehicles owned by Elvis. Highlights include his famous Pink Cadillac, Stutz Blackhawks, a 1975 Dino Ferrari, a 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible, the red MG from “Blue Hawaii,” Elvis’ John Deere tractor, his Rolls Royce sedans, his Mercedes Benz limousine and more. Also, see some of Elvis’ favourite motorised toys, including a go-cart, dune buggy, motorised three-wheelers and a pedal car.

Elvis purchased a 1958 Convair 880 in April 1975 and named it Lisa Marie after his daughter. He spent more than $800,000 having the jet remodelled. Climb aboard this customised jet that features a living room, conference room, sitting room and private bedroom, as well as gold-plated seatbelts, suede chairs, leather covered tables, 24-karat gold-flecked sinks and more. Then, take a peek inside Elvis’ smaller Lockheed Jet Star, customised by Elvis with a yellow and green interior.

Billed as the greatest expansion in Graceland's history, Elvis Presley's Memphis opened in March 2017 directly across the street from the King of Rock'n'Roll's famed mansion. Among the state-of-the-art entertainment complex's must-see features are a museum highlighting Elvis' vast career, his iconic 1955 pink Cadillac and two custom airplanes, a 20,000-square-foot music venue and various pop-culture exhibits, themed restaurants and retail shops.

For the full Elvis experience, stay at The Guest House at Graceland, conveniently located next to Graceland. The Guest House at Graceland is a 45-room, full-service resort hotel that opened in 2016. Inspired by Elvis' iconic home, every aspect of The Guest House at Graceland reflects Elvis' personal style and the unique character of Graceland, from the Southern colonical exterior to the themed specialty suites. The Guest House features spacious rooms and a range of elegant and contemporary facilities, including two full-service restaurants, expansive meeting and special events space, a large outdoor pool and a 464-seat theatre for live performances and films.

Depending on when you are planning on visiting Graceland, you may also be able to enjoy some of our annual celebrations during the year. Elvis’ Birthday Celebration is held in early January each year and features four days of events surrounding the King’s birthday on January 8. In August, enjoy a weeklong celebration of the movies, music and legacy of Elvis during Elvis Week. Christmas at Graceland runs from late November to early January each year and you can enjoy Graceland decorated for the holidays with Elvis’ traditional decorations.
