In honor of Elvis Presley’s birthday, I’m sharing my 10 favorite locations in and around Graceland. For those who’ve been to Graceland, you were probably surprised by how “small” Graceland actually is. While I still I still consider it a mansion, it is not as huge as you might imagine. As someone who could basically have anything he wanted, it tells a lot about his character to see that he decided to stay put in Graceland all his life. It was fascinating to step into the rooms and walk the halls where the king once lived. Everything seemed to be frozen in time. Graceland should be on every roadtrippers list of places to visit.
Last year I was blessed to have made it to some new places across the country. While there’s many more photos to share from 2013, I’ve picked my favorite five from last year. I hope that I am fortunate enough this year to travel to just a fraction of the places I made it to in 2013. I hope that you will create a goal for yourself to go somewhere new at least once a year, no matter how near or far from home.
