A beautiful mansion preserved the way it was when Elvis Presley passed away in 1977.

Visiting Graceland Mansion is a must if you are anywhere near Memphis. Elvis bought Graceland when he was just 22 years old. Elvis Aaron Presley was born on January 8, 1935. He was known as the "King of Rock & Roll" and was an American singer, musician, and actor. He married Priscilla Ann Wagner on May 1, 1967. They had a little girl, Lisa Marie Presley, on February 1, 1968. When Elvis passed away on August 16, 1977, he was only 42 years old. He died from a heart attack likely brought on by his addiction to prescription barbiturates. The cost of maintaining the mansion was so high that the executors of the estate decided to open Graceland for tours in 1982.

Graceland tours begin at the visitors center, and then you are shuttled to the mansion. During the tour, you will see the house's lower floor, including the living room, dining room, guest room, and TV room. The basement has an office, a billiards room, and Elvis's shooting range. Other buildings on the property include the trophy room featuring artifacts such as Presley's birth certificate, guns, report cards, his 1st-grade crayon box, and Pricilla's wedding dress. The racquetball building has been kept to look the same as when Elvis used it. Here, you will also find a comfortably furnished room where Elvis hung out and played music with friends. The meditation garden is where Elvis is buried. Several other family members are also buried there. Visitors could easily spend an entire day at Graceland.
