8 DAYS

 

TN7088 - AUG 21, 2017 to AUG 28, 2017

Day 1 Englewood, OH
We begin our adventure by crossing into the United States and on to our first night accommodation in Englewood, OH.

Day 2 Nashville, TN
Our journey continues south through the state of Kentucky and on to Nashville Tennessee. Widely hailed as the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Aaron Presley was indisputably the most influential performer in the history of rock & roll and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1998. This afternoon we explore the many exhibits of this fascinating Museum. Along with Elvis memorabilia, you will see his 1960 Series 75 Fleetwood convertible limousine. Custom built at a cost of $100,000 (approx. $2.3 million US Dollars today) it was fitted with just about every little luxury you could possibly think of at that time. Definitely “A Cadillac fit for a King!” We overnight in Nashville. (B)

Day 3 Memphis, TN
After breakfast we set our sights on Tupelo, Mississippi where we visit the Elvis Presley Birthplace and Museum. Built by Vernon Presley, this modest, two-room house is where the King of Rock & Roll was born on January 8, 1935. From this humble beginning, Elvis Presley began his swift rise to become the world's most popular entertainer. This home is part of the 15-acre Elvis Presley Park which includes a garden walkway system, a gift shop and beautiful landscaping. Inside the park a museum traces his road to fame, beginning with a unique collection of clothing and concluding with such personal items as riding boots and a Las Vegas jumpsuit. The Chapel, built by donations from his fans, offers visitors a time for meditation. We continue our travels to Memphis, TN. (B)

Day 4 Memphis, TN
This morning we visit Graceland, the 17,552 square-foot mansion the King of Rock and Roll called home. The mansion’s highlights present the personal and family side of Elvis’ life. Take time to visit the Meditation Garden where Elvis and members of his family are laid to rest. Next we visit the new state-of-the-art facility, “Elvis, Past Present and Future” which presents Elvis’ incredible story in an unprecedented, interactive and highly-engaging way. The cornerstone of this new complex will be “Elvis: The Entertainer,” a 200,000-square-foot museum celebrating Elvis’ incredible music, movie and live touring career featuring hundreds of artifacts from the extensive Graceland Archives. Follow the journey from his early days in Tupelo, Mississippi, through his first recording session in Memphis, rise to fame, Hollywood career, service in the U.S. Army, life at Graceland, the Las Vegas years and more. “Elvis: The Entertainer” will be the largest and most comprehensive Elvis museum in the world and the Automobile Museum will showcase over 20 of Elvis’ automobile and motorized vehicles, including Elvis’ iconic Pink Cadillac! This evening is at your leisure. Why not explore Beale Street! (B)

Day 5 Memphis, TN
Today we explore Memphis on a guided tour. Your expert local guide knows Memphis history like no one else, including the inside, “backstage” stories from the folks who were there, as well as those hard-to-find, hidden Elvis sites such as his Lauderdale Courts apartment, Humes High School, the Overton Park Shell Theatre where Elvis gave his first paid concert, places where he worked and played, and many others. You’ll hear entertaining stories about Elvis, his family, and the city he called home. Later we visit Sun Studio, probably the most famous recording studio in the world, where rock ‘n’ roll was first recorded. Hear outtakes from sessions, touch Elvis’ first microphone, see memorabilia, and relive the history of the studio that launched the careers of Elvis and other music legends. This evening, enjoy a relaxing dinner cruise along the Mississippi. (B,D)
