On January 8, 1935, 88 years ago, the world was graced by the presence of Elvis Aaron Presley.

Before his unfortunate death, The King had reserved a spot in hearts across the world with his angelic voice, swinging hips, and swoon-worthy acting.

Chief Commercial Officer of Travel at 60 Wendy Harch said Elvis-themed holidays are the perfect way to immerse yourself in The King’s greatness.

“These packages really provide an excellent opportunity to talk a walk down memory lane and enjoy the work that Elvis graced the world with,” Harch said.

“Whether it’s the tour, the festival, or a cruise, you’ll be having the best time with fellow Elvis fans, toe-tapping your way through his legacy.”

In honour of The King, the team at Travel at 60 has taken the love for Elvis a step further, curating the perfect themed holidays to pay tribute to one of the most beloved performers the world has ever seen.
