Graceland is the second most visited historic home in the United States, hosting more than 600,000 visitors who come to pay homage to the King. How long one spends at Graceland really depends on one's level of interest in Elvis – you can make a quick tour of the mansion and be out in an hour, or spend the day at all the associated exhibits across from the estate. For those truly committed, special exhibits change frequently. The mansion itself is really just a large family home, forever stuck in the design decade of the '70s. Elvis has a very deep interest in interior design, so he played a major role in choosing d�cor for the home, especially the basement. The infamous Jungle Room, where Elvis and his band actually recorded an album, is over-the-top tropical, featuring leopard spots, tropically-themed d�cor and green shag carpet on the floor and ceiling. Guests are never allowed to roam upstairs to view the Presley family's private quarters. Elvis' gravesite in the Meditation Garden is part of the mansion tour.
