Little Graceland

Before moving to Corpus Christi last October I lived in a little town called Los Fresnos. It's a nice little town, just don't speed! :) I am the first to admit there is little to do there, but...there is ....Little Graceland which is located on West Highway 100 in Los Fresnos. The Museum contains a large collection of Elvis Presley memorabilia, including photos, posters, watches, and more. The owner of the Museum, Simon Vega served with Elvis in the army and after Elvis' death he started the Museum.

Mr. Vega and the City of Los Fresnos hold two annual festivals, one in August for the memorial of Elvis' death and a party in January for the King's Birthday. The festivities include: live music, food and beverages, look-a-like contest, sing-a-like contest, car shows, trivia questions, museum tours, and fun for the family. The highlight of the festivities are the world class impersonators that come from all around to perform the Elvis hits on stage.

If you're ever driving through or visiting the area, please stop in and visit Little Graceland, especially if you are an Elvis fan!
