Elvis Week draws faithful to Memphis and beyond
…TripAdvisor, meanwhile, offers an anniversary-related round-up of 10 Elvis attractions in Memphis, his birthplace of Tupelo, Miss. and beyond. Among the lesser-known options: the Bay Beach Amusement Park in Green Bay, Wis., where "visitors can rock and roll down the Zippin Pippin, one of the oldest wooden rollercoasters in America and Presley's favorite ride. Elvis reportedly liked the attraction so much that he would occasionally rent out the entire Memphis amusement park it was originally located in, and story has it he rented it just a week before his passing. Park admission is free; it costs $1 to ride the Zippin Pippin."
