A June 1996 trip
to Memphis by Carmen
Quote: Although I wasn't impressed with Mempis as a whole, Graceland was certainly worth seeing.
Aside from the beauty of the musical-note-decorated front gate, and the southern majesty of the house, the best part of visiting Graceland is seeing how outrageous Elvis was in the 70s. Elvis had just decorated his house a few years before his death, and it's left in that style. Carpet on the ceiling and such. :) I wonder how cool it looked in its 50s style?
Another highlight was seeing Elvis' grave, and seeing his name misspelling on the stone. So is he alive? Hmmmm. Consipiracy theorists beware.
Also, just for kicks, send a postcard to yourself with an Elvis stamp and have it postmarked Graceland. A cool souvenir.
