    Monsters, Ghosts, Myths, Folklore, Legends and Scary Stories in California

    The haunted swimming pool of Ramona Convent Secondary School in Alhambra, where bathers have their legs grabbed by unseen hands (the nun in white, in the library, is more harmless); the spectral prisoners of Alcatraz; the many hauntings of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, which include a Lady in White in the reception area, children playing in the swimming pool, a man killed in the engine room and the mystery of room B340; the haunted parking garage and eighteenth floor lounge of the Los Angeles Airport Marriott; the reputedly haunted Renaissance Los Angeles Airport hotel, part of the Marriott chain; the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe, claimed as employees by the Red River Lumber Company of Westwood; the wraiths of Camp Comfort County Park, which include a phantom horsewoman, a charred man, a headless man riding a motor bike, a bloody bride and a demonic hound that watches over the tomb of a vampire; and the ghost of Claudia in the Mansions Hotel, San Francisco, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of California.

    The haunted fourth floor window and other mysteries at the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles; cowboys still searching for their gold in Rios Canyon, San Diego; the Mennonite Lady in White of Adelaida Cemetery, who on Friday nights puts flowers on the grave of a child; the sirens, serpents and flying monsters that once inhabited Santa Barbara Island and which may, perhaps, be reawakened one day; Santa Paula's horned, white and hairy anthropoid, the Billiwhack Monster; the little phantom girl who knocks on the door of Room 42 and the spectral madame of Room 33 who are among the ghosts of the San Remo Hotel, San Francisco; Kabar, Rudolf Valentino's Great Dane, who still lollops about the Los Angeles Pet Cemetery; and San Diego's haunted Horton Grand Hotel, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in California.

    The spirits of Kate Morgan, a little boy and girl, the mistress of a millionaire, a Victorian lady who likes to dance and a former caretaker in San Diego's famous Hotel Del Coronado (used in the movie Some Like it Hot and remarkable for its Victorian wooden architecture); the spectral woman who still supervises the Phoenix Inn oriental restaurant in Alhambra; the spectral white deer of San Diego's Presidio Park; the beautiful but sad Amanda, said to haunt Room 325 of the Vagabond Motel, San Diego; the ghostly barefoot woman of Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco; the male phantom of San Diego's luxurious US Grant Hotel; the blue, brain-like ETs of Palos Verdes; and Tahoe Tessie, Lake Tahoe's answer to Lake Champlain's Champ and to Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, are more weird folklore associated with California.

    The reputedly haunted Room 217 of the Marriott Hotel, Long Beach; the many ghosts of Elysian Park, Los Angeles, including a headless hound and a Lady in White; the ghost who still makes phone calls from Room 1007 of the Paso Robles Hotel, San Francisco; the bigfoot or sasquatch of the northern forests; the ghostly sailors of the aircraft carrier USS Hornet in Alameda; the ghostly couple who haunt the Marriott Anaheim Fairfield Inn, Anaheim; the spirits of Sacramento City Cemetery, including a little girl and a pit bull terrier; the spirit of schoolteacher Miss Mary Lake in Room 410 of the Queen Anne Hotel in San Francisco, which was once a girls' school; and the phantom policeman of Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, who hands out real but not legal speeding tickets, are yet more strange folktales of California.

    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. Atlantic City, Fairbanks, Las Vegas, Miami, Sitka, Seattle, Chicago, Juneau, St Louis, Washington DC, Savannah, Sacramento, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Anchorage, New York, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Detroit, Skagway, Santa Fe, Salt Lake City, Corpus Christi, Dallas, San Francisco, Albuquerque, Kansas City, Honolulu, Lake Tahoe, San Diego, Phoenix, Indianapolis and Boston 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 The California coastline, the Everglades, Bryce Canyon, Yosemite National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Route 66, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Okefenokee Swamp, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Ozarks, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Florida Keys, the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, the Appalachians, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Mount Rainier National Park, rodeos, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Adirondacks, the Disney resorts, the wild west town of Tombstone and the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta.

    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. We hope that you enjoy your hotel.
