Legends, Folklore, Myths, Ghosts, Monsters and Scary Stories in Michigan
The shampoo using and TV remote hiding ghost that haunts Wayne's Red Apple Restaurant and Inn in Wayne (the spectre is of a man allegedly murdered by a maid because he didn't give her a tip, so GIVE THE MAID A TIP); the phantom woman in the garden of Stafford's Perry Hotel, Petoskey; the spirit of Amelia Earhart, said to haunt the Landmark Inn in Marquette; the ghosts of a man, a woman and a girl in the Blue Pelican Inn (formerly Murphy's Lamplight Inn) in Central Lake; the Melon Heads (melonheads) of Felt Mansion, similar to those of Connecticut and, I believe, the source of the Catskill gnomes legend involving Rip van Winkle and Hendrik Hudson; the Dogman, encountered since the nineteenth century; and strange occurrences in the Fenton Hotel, Fenton, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Michigan.
Giant, lupine waheelas; the slender, man-eating hidebehind, a "fearsome critter" indeed, which can conceal itself behind any tree but which, unlike pink elephants, can be avoided by drinking alcoholic beverages; tales of giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe (Oscoda is his official home, as the first Paul Bunyan story was published there but Ossineke has statues of Paul and Babe and the claims of other towns are disputed by Manistique, which also has a statue of Paul); the werewolves (loups-garous / loup-garous) that plagued Detroit when it was a French community and which might, one day, be reawakened (could a waheela be mistaken for a werewolf - or vice versa?); the ghost of Samuel Graczyk, a lumberman accidentally killed on the day of his wedding, at Deadman's Hill Scenic Overlook in Mackinaw State Forest; paranormal phenomena in the Henry hotel (formerly the Ritz Carlton) in Dearborn; and the stone monster slain by Hiawatha, evidenced by large rocks on the eastern side of Grand Traverse Bay, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Michigan.

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