Go to Graceland in an RV Rental
One for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, now go cat go. Go where? Paul Simon sang, “I’m going to Graceland”. You can too in an RV rental in Memphis.
After some extensive research…well a Google search, we found no evidence of whether or not Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll was an RVer. Nevertheless, at his home, Graceland, a 14-acre estate in Memphis, Tennessee is located a top notch RV park and campground.
Approximately 600 thousand fans visit Graceland annually to pay homage to the King. Obviously this destination is on many a bucket list! Graceland RV Park and Campground is a short walk from the center the action which is not only the mansion but a complex of museums that have been declared a National Historic Landmark. Elvis and several family members are also buried in a memorial garden on the property. Assuming that you rent an RV in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston or Austin, Texas, Memphis is a one to two day drive depending on your situation and preferences. If you have enough time for a side trip, we recommend that you include stretches of the 2,400 mile historic Route 66 in your itinerary.
Whatever your plan might be – you could be near or far, but a visit to the Graceland is a must. It would be amazing if you can squeeze in a stay of a few days at the campground – plan your RV rental in such a way so you can make a visit to Graceland in the near future. Wouldn’t you love to spend some time at the place that was home to the legendary Elvis and learn more about him and his music? Moreover, there are several other Memphis attractions, like Sun Studio, Beale Street and the National Civil Rights Museum that you definitely shouldn’t miss!
