Graceland πŸ•Ί

Our campsite was about 20 minutes away from Memphis, TN, so that we could go see Elvis’s House Graceland. We left early so that we could be in Nashville, TN later that day. We weren’t sure if his house would be open on Easter Sunday fortunately it was!

We parked the car then walked up to the ticket booth. It was as if we were at an amusement park. There were huge portraits of Elvis hanging outside (photo below).

And a large Graceland sign welcoming visitors to Elvis’s memorial (photo below).

We were so happy we got a discount on the tickets since Sarah is a AAA member. Before getting in line to the brief introduction movie, I (Candace) see that they have a coffee stand by the movie door. So I got coffee. I was a happy camper at this point. We quickly head to the line for the movie to watch some clips of the legendary Elvis. Concluding that it was time to ride the bus to Elvis’s home, I hadn’t finished my coffee yet. I assumed that I could bring it with me to the home since they had the coffee stand right there. No, that wasn’t the case. I was instructed to throw it away before getting on the bus. I was a little frustrated that they didn’t tell me ahead of time.

Anyways, we get to Elvis’s House (photo above) that was a sweet southern style home. We were provided ipads and headphones for our guided tour. We went into the sitting room which was ordinary in comparison to the rest of the house.

One of the most extravagant rooms was the famous Jungle Room. There was shag green carpet on the ground as well as the ceiling and a bunch of animals around the room (photo below).

After seeing his house, we checked out his airplanes which were elaborately decorated as well. He even had a bed inside of the airplane.

Once we were done with admiring Elvis and all his glory, we left to go stay with my Aunt and Uncle in Nashville, TN! They have an RV which we stayed in. This RV was so luxurious and spacious. We had our first campfire since we’ve been on the Β road.

Much love,
