Keeping the spirit of The King alive

Elvis fans of all ages will love The King’s Ransom Museum, opening inside Imperial Palace.

For the first time ever, this one-of-a-kind exhibit of Elvis Presley artifacts and personal treasures is available for all to see. Starting Oct. 21, you’ll see pieces from both Elvis’ personal life as well as his acting and singing careers.

The King’s Ransom Museum will feature items like Elvis’ 1977 Lincoln Continental, stage and film wardrobe, jewelry, guns, badges, a variety of Elvis’ law enforcement objects (I’m curious to see this) and personal items from his Graceland home. One of these personal pieces includes the Bible that was on his nightstand when he passed away. You’ll also see many more items throughout his life from the ’50s through the ’70s.

I believe this will be an exhibit that everyone will enjoy. I even have my favorite Elvis songs I sing from time to time. Even if you’re too young to appreciate The King, you’ll get the opportunity to learn about the legacy he left behind as well as growing an appreciation for the artist.

The King’s Ransom Museum is located on the third floor of the casino, inside the Imperial Palace’s Royal Hall. Starting Oct. 21, the exhibit will be open daily from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. And for only $10 per person, it’s worth putting on your “blue suede shoes” and heading over to Imperial Palace. But hurry — this exhibit will only be available until April 2010.

Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.

    Hello, Curtis! I double-checked the original press release e-mail I received and called the concierge desk at the hotel where The King’s Ransom Museum will be held. Both confirmed the time is 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily.
