    Ghosts in all of the rooms (including one that still sometimes leaves tips for the maid) at Miss Molly's Hotel bed and breakfast, once a bordello, in Fort Worth; the Confederate soldier and the phantom boy nicknamed "Jimmy" who still roam Tremont House hotel in Galveston; the lady in white who carries a cat in the Marriott Plaza Hotel in San Antonio; the ghostly nun and the doppelgangers of staff who roam La Posada Hotel, on the site of a former convent, in Laredo; the three ghosts of the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Galveston, including one that leaves the scent of gardenias in a room; the unexplained phenomena and spectres of the Hotel Lawrence, Dallas, including the ghost of a gambler; and the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Texas.

    Paranormal phenomena at the Tarpon Inn, Port Aransas, including a bathroom that sometimes has a pink glow; the Lake Worth monster, a creature appearing as part man, part goat and part fish; the spirits of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, such as the shade of Sarah Morgan (who was killed by a student) in the biology building, the ghost of a bearded and stetsoned professor in Holden Hall, the phantom of a student in the underground tunnels (still trying to sneak into the girls' dormitories) and "George", the harmless spectre of the old President's House; the ghost of a murdered call girl in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio; phantoms of the Faust Hotel, New Braunfels, which include a black cat; the winged, humanoid monsters of Littlefield who allegedly lived in the basement of two elderly spinsters; and the alleged hauntings of the historic Excelsior House Hotel in Jefferson, including a light-fingered woman in black with a baby, a perfumed lady, a headless man and a boy who wakes people up to ask whether they want breakfast (it is even claimed that Steven Spielberg had a supernatural experience at the hotel, the guests of which have included Oscar Wilde and Ulysses S Grant, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.

    Supernatural entities at Victoria's Black Swan Inn in San Antonio; strange phenomena at the Emily Morgan Hotel, near the Alamo in San Antonio (the Alamo itself is said by some to be the site of paranormal phenomena); the emerald-headed serpent, a great deity that inhabits a crystal cave in the Gulf of Mexico but which, according to Native Americans, may be seen from the coast, when it ventures to the surface with a great display of light; the suicidal jumper who is said to still haunt his room at the Omni Austin Hotel; the strange phenomena at the Driskill Hotel, Austin, including the odd sensation experienced by guests who stare at the third floor picture of a child holding flowers; the phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo; the ghostly woman who walks the banks of the Rio Grande in Laredo, looking for the children that she pushed over a cliff into the river; the spectral cowboys who, in the hours before dawn, walk in the courtyard of the Y.O. Ranch Hotel, Kerrville; and the groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical, are yet more strange folktales of Texas.

    Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. San Francisco, New York, Skagway, Minneapolis, Juneau, Boston, Houston, Anchorage, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Seattle, Phoenix, Atlantic City, Detroit, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Atlanta, Savannah, Salt Lake City, Lake Tahoe, Fairbanks, Sacramento, New Orleans, St Louis, Sitka, Santa Fe, Philadelphia, Albuquerque, San Diego, Corpus Christi, Miami, Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, Indianapolis and Washington DC are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include Niagara Falls, the Adirondacks, Mount Rushmore, Glacier Bay National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Appalachians, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Everglades, Yosemite National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the California coastline, rodeos, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Disney resorts, the Florida Keys, Mount Rainier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Bryce Canyon, Route 66, the Grand Canyon and the Ozarks.

    The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies.
