Elvis is a 'local,' a family hero, and his spirit lives on and continues to benefit Memphis. I never really understood what this legend of Elvis was all about, but you will after spending three hours on the Graceland grounds and visit some of the related attractions. Try to organize your visit to include the 'tour' of jazz, which includes a shuttle that stops at The Rock n' Soul Museum, Sun Studio and (?)... we did not know about this. The beauty of seeing a couple of these sites together is that they each address the history of The Blues in different ways, making its picture that much more complete. ALSO, I hate bus tours. By using the shuttle, you dictate how much time you spend at each place and save $. Enjoy.
