The well dressed ghost, believed by some to be Al Capone, in the Hotel Julien Dubuque; the Van Meter Visitor, a giant, bat-like, light-emitting creature, freed from its subterranean lair by coal miners, that terrorised the town of Van Meter in 1903 and which might be reawakened someday (the entrance of the mine was dynamited to shut in the monster but the townsfolk had better pray that the price of coal does not climb much higher); the spectre of a little girl that signals visitors to leave Hickory Hill Cemetery in Charlotte; ghosts including a gypsy queen, accompanied by crows, in Union Township Cemetery, Algona; the White Lady haunting the Granger House Museum in Marion; the Mud Man, a humanoid creature apparently made of mud, that inhabits the area near the Metz Railroad Trestle Bridge in Newton (part of a human skull was recently found in the vicinity); and the ghosts of a well dressed man and a lady in white at The Hotel Ottumwa in Ottumwa, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Iowa.
The dragon that created Spirit Canyon on the Big Sioux River; the snapping turtle the size of a car in Big Blue lake, Mason City; the phantom Native Americans that still chase the ghost of Mrs Lott in Vegors Cemetery, Lehigh; unexplained phenomena in the Grand Opera House, Dubuque; the spectre of a woman in evening dress and the ghost of Cary Grant in Hotel Blackhawk, Davenport; the ghost of a little girl in the Hawkeye Theatre, Fort Dodge; and how a Native American girl called White Cloud is buried at Lover's Leap, Elkader, where she leapt to her death after mistakenly believing that her white lover had been forced to jump, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Iowa.
America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Phoenix, Fairbanks, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Atlantic City, Savannah, Skagway, Juneau, Houston, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Santa Fe, Corpus Christi, Sitka, Kansas City, Seattle, Dallas, Honolulu, Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Washington DC, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Lake Tahoe, Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, San Diego, Detroit, Boston, Anchorage, St Louis, Miami, Sacramento and Albuquerque. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Route 66, the wild west town of Tombstone, rodeos, the Florida Keys, the California coastline, the Everglades, Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, the Disney resorts, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the Ozarks, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Mount Rainier National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, Mount Rushmore, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Appalachians, Yosemite National Park and the Adirondacks are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America. We hope that you enjoy your hotel.
