Excellent choice for Sunday afternoon fun. Beautiful spring day and the grounds are shady and serene. Very appropriate tribute to Elvis. Well worth the stop.

Its lovely. The grounds are serene & peaceful. Kids hiked up to the top of where they are building something. Only issue was the restrooms on the ground were locked. Many families with little kids strolling the grounds wanted to use it.

Visited the grounds of Presley Center. Wanted to see the recently placed statues at the top of the hill behind the building. Nice hike to get there and wonderful statue and plaques at the summit area. Highly Recommended.

Lovely area where you can tour Elvis' childhood home, see the church he attended, and much more. The memorial chapel is very touching, don't miss it. The entire area is well kept and a must if you are an Elvis fan.

Lots of interesting information on the King! Love the church and the presentation on his early church life. House was eye opening with the size and feel for his humble beginnings. If you are in the area it is a must see. Beautiful gardens and chapel.
