If you've always wanted to go to Graceland in Memphis, now is the time to plan your trip (or return trip!) because Graceland has plenty of new things to do and see. In addition to the acclaimed Mansion, there is now a luxury hotel, a 200,000-square-foot entertainment complex, and all new immersive experiences.
WHAT IS Elvis Presley's Memphis?
In 2017 Graceland opened the Elvis Presley's Memphis entertainment complex. It was the largest expansion of Graceland since the Mansion began offering tours in 1984. The 200,000 square-foot, $45 million complex is located across the street from the Mansion and the property's new four-star hotel, The Guest House at Graceland
This collection of museums, exhibits, restaurants, and shops allows visitors to "follow the path that Elvis took, surround themselves with the things that he loved, and experience the sights and sounds of the city that inspired him".
What exactly can you expect at Elvis Presley's Memphis? First, Elvis' collection of flashy hot-rods and classic cars has a swanky home inside Presley Motors, the new Elvis Presley Automobile Museum. The Elvis: The Entertainer museum focuses on his career and achievements; other special spaces are dedicated to even more Elvis memorabilia and history. If you're hungry after a day at Graceland, you can eat at two new restaurants that honor Elvis' parents: Vernon's Steakhouse and Gladys' Diner.
