AOL Travel Editor’s Review

As the ultimate pilgrimage for rock-‘n'-roll lovers, Elvis's former mansion is a shrine to the King's eccentricity and gaudy taste. Exhibit A: The "Jungle Room," with its lime green shag carpet and indoor waterfall. Other highlights include the basement TV room, where Elvis often watched multiple screens at once, and the 1970s-style kitchen. Guests are not allowed in the upstairs rooms where, in 1977, Elvis was found dead on the floor of a drug-related heart attack at the age of 42. You can, however, visit his grave—it's outside, next to the swimming pool. Various outbuildings on the Graceland property contain exhibits and artifacts, like Elvis's gold records, jumpsuits and old movie posters. For an extra fee, you can visit the car museum (check out the King's pink Caddy) and the airplane museum. To visit Graceland, purchase tickets at the visitor's complex across the street—come early, as there's often a line. You'll be given an audio headset and shuttled by bus onto the property to begin a self-guided tour.
