A Guide to Graceland

A Guide to Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee (B)

So, I have wanted to visit Graceland for some time now. Don’t ask me why because I’m not an Elvis fanatic nor do I know much about him. But I feel as an American, it’s my duty see what all the craze is about.

Over the years, I’ve scanned Graceland’s website thinking I might get to Memphis soon. Tickets used to be a reasonable $30, but recently with a massive renovation to the complex, the price to enter has sky rocketed. Tours range anywhere from $41 to see the mansion only to $174 for the Ultimate VIP experience.

While Graceland’s website provides details about what will be seen on each tour as well as the approximate time it would take to visit, I still wasn’t positive about which tour to purchase. Ultimately, I chose to the Elvis Experience Tour with the airplane add-on for $66, and this tour seemed right for me and anyone who just wants to know more about Elvis and the time period.

As I was browsing the web for other places to visit in Memphis, I stumbled across Sun Studio where Elvis was first recorded. Sun Studio provides a free shuttle service to Graceland with the purchase of a studio tour for $14. Being without a car, this was a perfect option for me. For the price of a one-way Lyft, I got to see an attraction and have a two-way ride to Graceland. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
