Born on Jan. 8, 1935, Elvis Aaron Presley was one of the greatest cultural icons of the 20th century, known to millions of fans around the world as “the King of Rock and Roll,” or simply, “the King.” Elvis was a transformative music figure who fused country, rhythm and blues, and elements of pop and gospel into what became the foundation of rock and roll. His extraordinary stage presence broke barriers, set the standard for all who followed, and galvanized an entire generation of youth culture. In terms of pure numbers, Elvis is unmatched - according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Elvis is the best-selling solo artist of all time, with 1 billion sales worldwide (129.5 million in the U.S.). He’s inspired a legion of impersonators, and pretenders to his throne come and go. But Elvis Presley will always be the King. 

Elvis fans can explore his legacy throughout LA, from a historic recording studio to his favorite restaurants, hotels, and even a spiritual sanctuary near the Pacific Ocean. Read on and discover Elvis Presley’s Los Angeles.
