What visit to Memphis would be complete without a visit to Graceland? Graceland is highly underrated compared to today's "Cribs" and other reality shows giving you insight into the way Hollywood stars live today. I myself was shocked by the size of Elvis' home. Once you put yourself into the mindset that this mansion was decorated and lived in during the 1970s, it's still hard to grasp that such a pinnacle of our time lived in these surroundings. It's flashy, yes, but it's by no means over-the-top. Easily you could see a family of four residing in the same house today (with some major decorating modifications, of course).

The grounds are impeccably maintained, and I enjoyed the audio tour, as it lets you go at your own pace. The foundation that manages Elvis’ estate has done a great job of organizing tours and displaying his movie artifacts and costumes for all of his fans to enjoy. This is a definite must-see if you happen upon Graceland!
