If you're in NYC, there are a variety of ways to celebrate whether you're dining on one of his favorite foods or wearing an item that bears his likeness.

Grab a sandwich

It's no secret that "The King" loved peanut butter. On January 8, head over to Peanut Butter & Co. on Sullivan Street for "The Elvis" sandwich. It consists of peanut butter, honey and bananas. You can also throw bacon on there for $1 extra.

Buy Elvis Festival tickets

From May 31 to June 3, Elvis is going to invade Lake George. Although the Elvis Festival isn't on his actual birthday, you can celebrate the day by purchasing tickets to attend. The event will consist of various happenings including a tribute artist contest, a collectibles sale, an after hours party, a classic car parade and even more. Ticket prices range depending on the package you purchase.

Visit Madame Tussauds

Did you know that there's a wax figure of Elvis at Madame Tussauds in NYC? Purchase tickets online (it's cheaper than getting them in person) and head over to the museum on his birthday. After you see his figure, there are plenty of others to check out.

Listen to his music

Listening to Elvis's music is the perfect way to spend his birthday. The Elvis Presley Channel on has already had over 39 million plays and over 1.5 million listeners. On his channel, you'll also hear music from other greats such as Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison.

Wear Elvis-themed clothing and accessories

There's certainly no shortage of Elvis-themed clothing and accessories to choose from that you can wear on his birthday. For accessories, some of your options include a music box necklace that plays "Love Me Tender," a Scrabble Tile Elvis Presley Pendant Necklace, an Elvis reversible Scrabble Tile Bracelet, Elvis the Pelvis Earrings, or Elvis Bottle Cap Earrings. There are many shirts to choose from including the Elvis slim fit cotton shirt.

Considering how big of an impact he had on the entertainment industry, his fans and the world, it's a wonderful thing to honor him on his birthday.
