Folklore, Legends, Ghosts, Myths, Scary Stories and Monsters in Minnesota
Ghostly footsteps heard on the Washington Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis (the poet John Berryman and others have leapt to their deaths from the bridge); the spiritual significance of the pipestone quarries in Pipestone National Monument, where the clay is stained reddish by the blood of bison (buffalo) eaten by the Great Spirit, where the first man and woman were created from the clay, where thunderbirds nest and where, beneath granite boulders, the spirits of two Native American shaman women called Tsomecostee and Tsomecostewondee dwell and may still be consulted by those who go there for their pipe clay; tales of the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan, whose statue in Brainerd is animated (there are also statues of Paul and his blue ox Babe in Bemidji); Native American stories about the wendigo, a ghoulish, insatiable, man-eating manitou that was sometimes a mutated, cannibalistic human; the unexplained geological mystery of the Devil's Kettle waterfall and pothole; the story of Winona, who leapt to her death near the town named after her (it was once called Keoxa) because her father would not let her marry the man she loved (are all Winonas unlucky in love?); the sad tale of Wenonah (also spelled Winonah, Wynonah or Winona and meaning first-born), who used a knife to take her own life near Fort Snelling when, prompted by an envious woman, a jealous suitor falsely condemned her during the Feast of the Virgins; and the mischievious, monkey-like argopelter that throws sticks at people, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Minnesota.

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