Graceland Tour - Home of Elvis
You've heard the music, now see the place Elvis called home. We will eat lunch as soon as we arrive around 11am at the famous Vernon's Smokehouse. Vernon's Smokehouse features authentic Memphis BBQ fare, including pork ribs, beef brisket and chicken, with our exclusive Vernon's Smokehouse BBQ sauce. In addition, enjoy classic southern cuisine and Elvis' favorite home cooking, including meatloaf, catfish and BBQ spaghetti. Lunch is included in your ticket price. After lunch, we will tour Graceland, home of Elvis Presley. We will explore the beautiful mansion, made fit for The King and walk the gardens where he found peace. Graceland is so much more than a Mansion. It was the private retreat of The King of Rock 'n Roll. It was where his family grew up, spent their time together and enjoyed life.
Today, you're invited to Explore Elvis Presley’s home and immerse yourself in his life and legacy. After the Mansion tour, we added something extra special. We will step aboard Elvis’ customized airplanes to see how he traveled in luxury. The Lisa Marie includes a living room, conference room, private bedroom and features gold-plated seatbelts, leather-covered tables, and 24-karat gold-flecked sinks. Plus, you can take a glimpse at Elvis’ smaller Lockheed Jetstar, the Hound Dog II. **NOTE** - There are other Elvis museums across the road from the mansion that are available to visit at an extra cost. We did not include those in this package because we are not sure that EVERYONE will be able to see it all in 3.5 hours. Some people walk slower than others and may have walkers or small children. However, after you tour the mansion and airplanes, you can decide for yourself if you have time to explore the museums at your own expense. We will head back home around 4pm. We will stop for supper around 5:30pm at a restaurant to be determined. We will update this itinerary with the exact location soon. We always choose places with a variety of menu items as well as highly recommended by locals. We like "Mom & Pop" places and rarely choose chain restaurants. You won't be disappointed. Supper will be on your own so you can spend as little or as much as you want to spend. EXTRA INFORMATION Bring a sharpie so you can sign the famous Graceland wall. Markers are not provided. Bring ID.
