Graceland Excursions

Tour like the king! Elvis Presley’s Graceland now offers expertly-guided, luxury motorcoach tours of major music landmarks and museums as the ideal complement to the Graceland tour experience in Memphis, Tennessee.  

Initial tours will include trips to Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis Presley’s birthplace, and the Mississippi Delta region -- known as the birthplace of the Blues.  The luxury coach ride to and from each destination will be a big part of the experience, as Graceland tour guides and Archives staff take guests on a fun musical journey, celebrating the music that influenced Elvis Presley, the greatest entertainer of all time. Graceland Excursions will preview with select dates in December 2017 and early January 2018, with an official launch of its regular, weekly schedule beginning January 12, 2018.  

These newly-created tours of Tupelo and the Mississippi Delta are designed to trace Elvis Presley’s musical roots, featuring the influences that inspired Elvis and other artists, to begin mixing blues, country, gospel and R&B to create an entirely new sound – dubbed Rock ‘n’ Roll – which was brought to life in Memphis, Tennessee over 60 years ago. Graceland Excursions are available to the general public and available separately from the Graceland attraction tour experience.  

Christmas Time

The holidays have officially arrived at Graceland. On Thursday Elvis Presley's home was lit up for all to enjoy. "It really looks like we're going back in time," said Elvis' longtime friend George Klein. "Elvis really loved Christmas. It was his favorite holiday." Klein goes way back and remembered lighting up the  Whitehaven home with Elvis for the very first time in 1957. "We used a broomstick as part of the light switch," he said. Since then the tradition has grown and attracted people from all over the world. The extensive Christmas display at Elvis' home includes hundreds of blue lights along the driveway, a life-size Nativity scene, Santa and his sleigh, and much more.
