An Elvis Presley Scavenger Hunt

Sunday, May 24 is National Scavenger Hunt Day, so we’re asking you: How well do you know Elvis Presley’s Graceland?

Graceland is more than just the King’s castle. Graceland was Elvis’ home, his private piece of paradise in a very public world. It feels both like the home of a Southern gentleman and a rock ‘n’ roll legend. There are family portraits, cozy couches and plush carpets, but there are also lush green shag carpet (on the ceiling), a room entirely covered in gorgeous fabric (which also covers the ceiling) and mirrors, everywhere (…yes, even on a few ceilings).

Elvis definitely shows off his rock ‘n’ roll style at Graceland, but the home is also just that – a home for his family. It’s truly a place that must be experienced.

Below are a few beloved pieces of Graceland, from its exterior to its interior and out on the grounds. Do you know where these things can be found in and around Graceland?

Play along here or on the VisitGraceland Instagram account. You can also print this blog post and bring it with you on your next trip to Graceland, and see if you can spot these items!

Have fun!
