This is it—the second most visited house in the United States—preserved exactly as when Elvis Presley lived here, complete with the Jungle Room and shag carpeting. Elvis' grave is also here and can be viewed free. Additionally, you can tour the auto museum, see the Lisa Marie and Jetstar airplanes, and view the Sincerely Elvis exhibit, all of which are across the street from the mansion, along with the ticket office. On August 16, the anniversary of Elvis' death, a candlelight vigil draws fans worldwide.
I enjoyed the tour. I would love to see them give a better description of the home prior to Elvis.
The only thing I did not care for was After Dark.
Everything else was neat and if you get a chance when leaving or before the tour, go up to the brick wall and and get your picture taken.
He was an Icon that will live forever.
It was really neat to tour the inside of Graceland and visit the Meditation Garden where Elvis and his family are buried. We didn't tour the planes but you walk right by then to purchase the tour tickets.
I knew going into this that it would be silly, but I figured - heck - I am in Memphis, I should see Graceland.
It was a little educational in the sense that what was considered nice back in the 70s and what would be considered nice today are definately two different things.
The one thing that pissed me off is that they try to nickle and dime you to death there for every little two-bit Elvis museum on the premesis.
In about 20 years, when most of the die hard elvis fans are dead, this place will be torn down. See it while you can, and get a t-shirt like I did...
MY HUSBAND AND MYSELF WENT TO GRACELAND JUNE 2007.
THIS WAS OUR DREAM HOLIDAY AND I NEVER THOUGHT WE WOULD MAKE IT.
I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT NEITHER OF US WERE DISAPPOINTED. IT WAS BETTER THAN I IMAGINED.
GRACELAND IS A FABULOUS HOUSE AND I COULD HAVE STAYED THERE FOREVER.
ELVIS WILL LIVE THERE FOR ETERNITY.

It is a fun place, and it is really like when he was alive. I loved his moms bedroom with the poodle wallpaper. The next thing is the display of all his costumes. The only thing I was concerned with was the grass is usually brown an dry. Then really need some type of watering system to freshen it up
Now I'm taking my girls by there to see the mansion on our way to Breyerfest. It was a neat place to go and see. Do not expect to be in awe over the house. Back in the day, it was awesome. But now, with everyone having everything they want, it's just a house with a lot of things in it. Beautiful grounds! It's nice the way they have Elvis's albums displayed. I recommend going, just don't be expecting the greatest thing in the world.
My husband is a massive Elvis fan and was completely amazed by the quality of the tour and professionalism of the whole experience. Plenty to see and plenty to learn without it being gushy and sentimental.
I have been an Elvis fan since I was 13, and I'm 63 now. Going to Graceland was a dream come true for me. When I was in the garden I couldn't stop crying, and I'm not a crier, Its really hard to describe how I felt.At one point I looked into the pool house and saw the reflection that I'm sure everyone says they have seen. Of Elvis. I know its a persons mind but I could swear I saw his profile. And again I'm not one of those people that really thinks he is alive. I will be back. I truly enjoyed it even with the crying part.It just makes one feel like he is close. All in all it was wonderful. Thank you so much.
