Where to Go: Elvis Week
Memphis, Tennessee (nearby Best Western hotels)
August 10-16
A week-long tribute to the King of Rock 'n Roll, this event includes a Graceland Trivia Tour, an Elvis-themed dance club where you can dance the night away, a special screening of "Elvis on Tour" -- complete with bonus footage -- and the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest. Elvis wigs and glasses aren't mandatory, but a healthy interest in all things Elvis are essential.

How to get there: 2010 Cadillac CTS
The pink 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood that Elvis Presley used to drive has since become a pop-culture icon and the most well-known of Presley's possessions, so it would only be fitting to cruise over to Elvis Week in one of that car's descendants. While it might not come in pink, the CTS does offer more than a Fleetwood, including a 304-horsepower V6, a Bose sound system to blast "Jailhouse Rock" and an advanced navigation system for easy guidance to Graceland.
