Our location - West Memphis, AR

Graceland


Well, it wouldn't be a visit to Memphis without a trip to Graceland, where it is all Elvis, all the time! Our friends, Jack and Danielle Mayer, were visiting here at the same time.  So, we went together.  The mansion and grounds are located on a very busy street, Elvis Presley Blvd.  Chances are it wasn't so busy 35 years ago.  It really is a lovely piece of property...set back from the road, loads of trees, and a rolling landscape behind the house, complete with out buildings, stables and, horses.  This, of course, is a front view of the house.

West Memphis AR Graceland is a museum as well as a house.  All of his gold records, Grammy awards, Army memorabilia, movie artifacts and his concert wardrobe are on display.  In addition, Elvis' private airplanes, including the "Lisa Marie," are also open for touring.
West Memphis AR And, the last stop on the tour is the "Meditation Garden", where the graves of Elvis, his parents, his grandmother and a memorial to his twin brother, who died in childhood, are located.  Flowers and tributes arrive daily at Graceland.  They are all displayed and are removed only when the live flowers have wilted and the plastic ones become weather worn.  They day we visited was bright and sunny and the "Meditation Garden" was quiet and respectful, despite the steady stream of human traffic.
