Graceland. I've heard little tidbits of information about this famous place throughout my life. From seeing it on TV to talking locals, I got a good mix of reviews. Regardless if they were positive reviews or negative ones, I believed I owed it to myself to take a trip over to Graceland to see what it was all about. After all, not only is Graceland one of the most visited houses next to the White House, it is also a part of American pop culture. I would argue that there is not one American alive that has never heard about, listened to, or seen the King of Rock and Roll, Mr. Elvis Presley.
I walked back to my car inspired. I realize in life everyone can't be anything they want to be just like we all aren't born equal. We are all born with our own unique talents. If Elvis stayed a truck driver, I'm sure he wouldn't have been the best truck driver in the world. Find your talent, develop it, and let it take you as far as it can. Who knows, someday you might have your own Graceland.
I had an incredible time visiting, and I know my mother did too (even if she wouldn't openly admit it)! If you find yourself anywhere near Memphis in your travels, take a day and go visit. You don't have to be an Elvis fan to appreciate Graceland. I promise you that you won't be disappointed.
