Put on your blue suede shoes and celebrate the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll! This week, fans of all ages flocked to Memphis, TN, for the annual Elvis Week celebration. And this year, fans are also celebrating the 60th anniversary of rock ‘n’ roll! On July 5, 1954, Elvis recorded “That’s All Right” at Sun Studio in Memphis, which brought rock ‘n’ roll to life, and transformed the music industry forever.

In 1957, just 3 years after recording “That’s All Right,” Elvis is pictured above performing on an outdoor stage to the adulation of a large crowd.

Pay homage to the King, and travel to Memphis, where you can book a stay at Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel, tour Sun Studio and visit Elvis’ home and gravesite at Graceland — Memphis’ most popular tourist attraction, welcoming more than 600,000 visitors a year!

And don’t forget to check back every week this month for our Vintage Summer Throwback Thursdays!

    Serious Elvis fans might also want to rock and roll right over to Palm Springs for the opportunity to put in an offer on Presley's Honeymoon Home.

    For a listing price of $9,500,000, you can make the 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 5,000 square foot home your very own celebrity retreat. http://www.zillow.com/blog/elvis-presleys-honeymo
