Finding ourselves in Memphis during a 2-week driving trip across our country landed us in Memphis. So of course we felt a visit to Graceland would be appropriate, right? I like Elvis as much as the next guy and thought this would be interesting. Wow, was I wrong! This was not only a waste of our money and time, but makes Elvis look like an idiot. First, Graceland is located in a run down, deteriorating area. Their parking lot is across a busy street from the actual Graceland and is enormous....like for a big theme park. The tickets are quite pricey and not worth it! NO idea what they are doing with the money they are taking in but they sure aren't using it to clean the graffiti off of the brick fence around the property or to take care of what should be lawn / grass around the property. None of the staff were friendly or even smiled. They were cold and said virtually nothing except to scold one of the visitors who touched one of the barriers. We had to wait quite a while for a shuttle to take us across the street, and the shuttle was small so it was slow going just to get there. If you want to see the crazy styles of the 1970s, you'll sure see it, but in my opinion it was nothing worth memorializing. Wow, if you love Elvis, don't go.....it's an embarrassment. I've lost some respect for the King and a lot more for his family who keep this thing running.
