Elvis Sighting in Southwest Orlando

Actually the sighting was just of his home or something very similar to it. I was all shook up when I ran across this replica of Elvis’ Graceland on Hyland Oaks Drive located off Hiawassee Road between Silver Star Rd. and Clarcona-Ocoee Rd.

I just had to stop and take a few photos. Of course some people drove by and saw me and shook their heads thinking those Orientals sure do love Elvis and their cameras. You know President Busch met the emperor of Japan at the real Graceland just a few years back. I heard he was a big fan. Hehe!

On a more serious note, I did a little research and realized it was actually up for sale in the year 2000 for $550,000 but never sold. The home is complete with a guitar shaped pool, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and 6,800 square feet on over 2 acres. The king lives on. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. Viva Las Vegas.
