Graceland Tops Al.com's Best Destinations of the Southeast

May 29, 2012

Elvis Presley's Graceland tops the list of al.com's "9 destinations across the Southeast every music lover should visit." 

In a recent article, the website attributes the origins of rock to the South and says every music fan should take the journey south to the birthplace of rock 'n' roll.

"Whether it’s a pivotal recording studio, venue, essential record store or the home where the king once slept, there are places in the Southeast every history-conscious music fan should visit at least once."

Graceland appears first on the list of destination stops and when talking about the mansions rooms, the website calls the Jungle Room the "signature space in Graceland" and adds, "the Hall of Gold is no joke either."

Al.com is Alabama's online source for news with content from the Birmingham News, the Huntsville Times, and Mobile's Press-Register.
