Announced today by USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice, Elvis Presley’s Graceland was voted #1 “Best Holiday Historic Home Tour” at 10Best.com. Graceland was voted into the top spot by the general public and readers of USA Today’s popular 10Best online travel site, who were asked to cast their online ballot for their favorite historic home holiday tour from a pool of 20 nationwide attractions nominated by a panel of travel writers and photographers.
This marks an impressive total of nine USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards for Elvis Presley’s legendary home, which previously won "Best Holiday Historic Home Tour" for the past three consecutive years making 2021 our fourth win in this category. Graceland's other 10Best accolates include: "Best Tennessee Attraction and Iconic Landmark” awarded in 2019, “Best Tennessee Attraction” awarded in 2018, “Best Musical Attraction” and “Best Historic Southern Attraction” awarded in 2015, and the first 10Best award in 2013 “Iconic American Attraction.”
Graceland's extensive Christmas display includes hundreds of blue lights along the driveway, a life-size Nativity scene, Santa and his sleigh, and much more, all originally displayed at Graceland by Elvis and the Presley family. Today, the Graceland staff authentically continues Elvis' Christmas decorating traditions each year – inside and out, including bringing out the red holiday draperies and setting up both versions of his front lawn displays.
