Step Up Your Selfie Game at Elvis Presley’s Graceland

When you visit a location as iconic as Elvis Presley’s Graceland, you have to take time to take the perfect selfie. After all, what’s better than having your photo made in front of the king’s castle, or with his gorgeous Pink Cadillac, or with his Gold Records?

We love seeing the creative photos and selfies that guests have snapped at Graceland – in fact, we’ve dedicated several past blog posts (here and here) to the best shots taken here. But back in March, we opened up our new exhibit and entertainment complex, Elvis Presley’s Memphis, which also opened up a new world for selfies. In this week’s blog, we’ll take a look at the best places to snap a selfie at Elvis Presley’s Memphis – and at Graceland, too, because there is no shortage of places to take a great photo at Elvis’ beloved mansion.

As soon as you enter Elvis Presley’s Memphis, you’re greeted with our “Welcome to Graceland” sign. We love that this sign alone makes fans want to jump with joy!

Once inside Elvis Presley’s Memphis, there are a ton of great locations for a photo, especially in the new car museum, Presley Motors, or in Elvis: The Entertainer Career Museum, where you can find Elvis’ jumpsuits, awards, promotional photos, early albums and much more.

Did you know we have an exclusive peanut butter and banana ice cream flavor here at Graceland? You can find ice cream at Minnie Mae's Sweets or at Gladys' Diner. (@sineadrosewilcox)

But of all of the wonderful places for a selfie at Elvis Presley’s Memphis, the most-photographed place is, hands down, a red, light-up ELVIS sign in Elvis: The Entertainer Career Museum. This sign brings out everyone’s inner rock star. Check out a few of these incredibly fun photos:

Elvis Presley’s Memphis is great, but you still have to take the perfect selfie at the king’s mansion across the street. Here are a few of our favorite recent selfies snapped at Graceland.

It's tempting to rush down the stairs at Graceland so you can see the TV Room and Pool Room, but if you can, stop and take a selfie in the king's mirrored hallway, like @laurietgallant.
