You Can Be A VIP Guest
Elvis’ love of gorgeous motor vehicles is legendary, and a VIP tour of Graceland allows you access to some striking motor vehicles. Elvis was full of surprises, though, and if cars don’t strike your fancy, then you can feast your eyes on his two private airplanes.
You Can Tour While Listening to Elvis’ Music
There is something spellbinding about touring the home of your favourite rock legend while listening to his music, and this is a nice touch. Die hard fans can enjoy his satin smooth voice as they tour his outrageously decorated home.
You Can See Elvis’ Jumpsuits and Records
Whether you’re an Elvis fan or not it is truly staggering to view this collection of famous stage outfits and the many number one records that made him one of Rock music’s greats.
You Can View The Jungle Room
A tour of Graceland would not be complete without seeing this memorable room, which certainly does its job to stir emotion and sentiment about The King’s life and over the top character!
You Can Buy a Dashboard Elvis!
Even if you don’t enjoy gift shops, you’ll probably want to invest in a memento of your trip to Graceland. Yes you can buy a dashboard Elvis if you really, really want one, but there are many other mementos to choose from to commemorate your trip to the home of this rock and roll legend.
