America's Top Roadside Attractions
Roads: I-55 and I-40
The premier rock-and-roll pilgrimage, Elvis Presley’s Graceland is an unavoidable roadside stop, a shrine to the King and his indulgences. Best known for the shagadelic Jungle Room and mid-century kitsch interiors, the colonnaded mansion boasts a trophy room packed with gold and platinum records, bedazzled stage costumes, a car museum, and custom jets. But the audio tour narrated by Lisa Marie Presley, only nine when her father died, is Graceland’s most moving highlight.
