Humuhumu’s description

Graceland is the mansion of Elvis Presley, and today it serves as a museum, with daily tours. Graceland is notable as a tiki destination for one reason: the legendary Jungle Room. This was Elvis' den, and it was decorated entirely with chunky Witco furniture, made of singed Cypress. Included is a small bar with stools, decorated with tikis. The room is also notable for its lime-green shag carpet, not only on the floor, but also on the ceiling.
Legend has it that Elvis found the furniture in a showroom in Memphis, and bought the entire set; coincidentally, that same day, his father Vernon had seen the set in the same store, and mentioned to Elvis how ugly it had been, without knowing that Elvis had bought the whole shebang.
The Jungle Room was the site of Elvis' final two studio recording sessions in 1976, when he set up a makeshift studio in the room. Tracks from the sessions have appeared on several posthumous releases.

Surprised my wife with a trip to Graceland, while I knew I was going to like it, I had no idea how much I’d learn and love this place. It’s Elvis’ house... ho hum right? No, not at all, to think that one man had that much talent and that much compassion for others blows me away.
Any Elvis fan should go, anyone that likes history should go, anyone that likes music should go, and anyone that loves tiki should go to see things from the aspect from a person that had it all and wanted to share quality tiki time with the ones he loved.
After all isn’t that what we all want?
