Memphis: Technically, A City

Memphis’ chief tourist attraction is Graceland, the palatial home of Elvis Presley. A popular urban legend is that “The King” died in his bathroom while sitting on the toilet. This is not true! Elvis died a hero, in Graceland’s Jungle Room, fighting off man-eating tigers, blood-thirsty alligators and surprisingly tenacious lemurs while sitting on the toilet. There was at least one toilet in each room in Graceland; some rooms had as many as 58 toilets.

You can see why Graceland is such a popular tourist attraction. People LOVE toilets!
