This great little getaway combines the homes of Elvis Presley, from his birthplace in Tupelo, Mississippi to his mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. Our lodging for three nights will be at the Guest House Hotel, situated only steps away from Graceland. This fashionable hotel takes its cues from the legendary hospitality and personal style for which the “King of Rock & Roll” was known. Our tour of Memphis will include a city tour, the Duck Parade at the Peabody Hotel and, of course, a tour of Graceland, including the grounds and gravesite of Elvis.
Day 1 – PEABODY DUCK PARADE – Today, our coach heads south to Memphis, Tennessee, where we are sure to get a taste of that wonderful southern hospitality. We arrive in Memphis and drive to the Peabody Hotel just in time to see the Duck Parade. The ducks play in the fountain in the hotel’s lobby, and are taken down a red carpet to the elevator and up to their rooftop home for the night. Next, we check into our hotel accommodations for the next three nights.
Day 2 – TUPELO, MISSISSIPPI – We begin our full day of touring with a drive to Tupelo, Mississippi to visit the birthplace of Elvis. This small two-room cottage will reveal the humble beginnings of “the king.” Next, we visit the Elvis Museum & Gift Shop, which displays various artifacts from his career. We return to the hotel for some rest before we enjoy an included dinner at the Blues City Café. Overnight same hotel.
Day 3 – MEMPHIS CITY TOUR – GRACELAND – This morning we visit Graceland, the lovely mansion of Elvis Presley. Here we see the dazzling costumes, gold records, gifts, a 17-carat diamond studded ring, a 24-carat gold leaf grand piano, his motorcycles and of course, the home and gravesite. This afternoon, a local guide steps aboard our coach to give us a grand tour of this beautiful city of Memphis. This evening is at your leisure.
Day 4 – HOME – This morning, we return home with beautiful memories of Memphis and a greater appreciation for the accomplishments of Elvis. Meals: 3B, 1D
