Graceland, Tennessee


Graceland is the home of "The King of Rock & Roll", the late Elvis Presley. I visited one day after "Elvis Week", a week-long festival filled with parties, impersonation contests, and hoards of crazy fans. Although I missed the party, one could still see the after-effects lingering about.

His former home was converted into a museum with a walking tour inside and other exhibits in connecting buildings. On the grounds was also his (and a few other's) gravesite, comfortably adjacent to the outdoor pool. It was here that I saw the artifacts left behind by the festival; literally hundreds of bouquets, decorated poster boards, hand-painted portraits of Elvis, and multimedia sculptures that were strategically plopped around the gravesite. Each of these items was usually accompanied by a small note or photo of the person/group who left it. Who ever knew there is a "Elvis Group of Tokyo" and "Elvis Club of Scotland"!? As tacky as things related to Elvis usually are, the museum is a well done tribute to The King.
