“How would it feel to stroll through the same set of rooms that Elvis Presley ambled through when he was alive?” you ask. Visit Graceland and you’ll feel the thrill firsthand. The 14-acre estate is a short drive from downtown Memphis along Elvis Presley Boulevard. How authentic is it? The King’s pink Cadillac still sits in the driveway on the ready for his next happening outing. Ponder the star’s importance in the Meditation Gardens and see where he was buried back in 1977. Take the audio tour, narrated by the sultry-voiced Priscilla Presley, or wander through the rooms with an iPod loaded with your favorite Elvis songs. Things really get hopping during Elvis week each August when thousands of fans come to pay homage to the legend. Before you leave, make sure to scrawl your name on the stone wall outside the mansion, just to let the King know you stopped by. Continue your Elvis adventure at the place where he his first record in 1954, Sun Studio. Though only a two-room museum, this place packs a lot of history into a small space. Stand at the mic where Elvis crooned or sit at the piano where the photo of the “Million Dollar Quartet,” featuring Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis, was shot. You can even cut your own record in the little studio that made music history. Make sure to grab a Moon Pie at the studio’s cafe while you’re there.
