Before I let the pictures speak for themselves, I should let you know that I went on the VIP tour which I highly suggest for anyone planning on making the trip to Graceland. It allows you to take your time viewing everything in all of the museums and you have multiple access to the mansion during the day. There's also a few extra things to see that you can only view if you're a VIP. Totally worth it!

This was definitely one of the most memorable trips I've ever been on. Seeing the inside of the house in person was mind blowing. It's totally 60/70's and I loved it. I love vintage and seeing it up close and personal was great. My favorite room was by far his living room with the peacock stain glass. I also thought that the over the top jungle room was a fabulous must see!
One thing that really surprised me was the size of the house. From the photos and footage that I had always seen the house looked giant inside. Well once you're actually in there, it's not. Now don't get me wrong, it's not small by any means but it definitely feels cozy. The grounds are beautiful and the pool/meditation garden are so peaceful. I can see why Elvis feel in love with it and chose it to make it his home.
I've heard the mansion is beautiful at Christmas. I think that'll have to go onto my must see list! I already want to go back! Who's up for a road trip?
