The female spectre of the town square, Savannah, who sometimes follows people around (she is seeking her baby who was born just before the woman was hanged for murder); the revellers of Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, who do not realise that the plantation house burned down long ago; a stream that rejuvenates all who bathe in it (is its source the Fountain of Youth in Florida?); The velociraptor-like Georgia Raptor; the statue of little Gracie Watson in Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, which is said to weep blood if anyone steals the presents which are sometimes left on her grave; a cave, near the source of the Hiwassee River, containing many human skulls whose former owners haunted a farmer, who had foolishly removed them, until he wisely put them back; the many hauntings (some in animal form) of Towns County, where the Hiwassee (Hiawassee) River forms on Rocky Mountain; and Altamaha-ha, the green sea serpent that haunts the area near the Altamaha River estuary, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Georgia.
The Natchez princess Nacoochee, who killed herself for love and who is said to be interred with her paramour in the eponymous Nacoochee Mound; the strange phenomena in John W Woolfolk House (Colonial Apartments), sometimes called The House of a Thousand Cadavers, in Columbus (the house contains private dwellings so do not be a nuisance); the headless horseman of Whitmire in Hall County, sometimes heard rather than seen, who rides straight at his victims before disappearing; the vengeful old woman who at night led several unsuspecting Native Americans to their doom at Toccoa Falls; the phantom of Edwin Booth, brother of Abraham Lincoln's asassin, in Springer Opera House, Columbus; the elderly woman whose ghost haunts the grand, antebellum Hay House in Macon; the pillar on Broad Street, Augusta, to which slaves were once chained and which causes the death of anyone who attempts to remove it; and the spectres of Confederate officers and their ladies who still promenade on the River Walk, Augusta, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.
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. Be as familiar with famous places as you might like to be with famous people. Sitka, Juneau, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Seattle, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Houston, Honolulu, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Boston, Albuquerque, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Corpus Christi, Salt Lake City, Santa Fe, Washington DC, New Orleans, Anchorage, Skagway, Miami, San Diego, Atlantic City, Savannah, Detroit, Lake Tahoe, St Louis, Chicago, Dallas, New York and Fairbanks. If you have seen those cities, you have at least seen the most famous ones in the USA. Visiting all fifty states is something that even most Americans cannot manage but it is possible to visit those cities, as well as other iconic destinations such as Mount Rainier National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, rodeos, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Mount Rushmore, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, Niagara Falls, Glacier Bay National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Route 66, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, the wild west town of Tombstone, Bryce Canyon, the Ozarks, the Appalachians, the Everglades, the Disney resorts, the Adirondacks, the California coastline and the Florida Keys. Casually mentioning places that you have visited can be as impressive as mentioning the names of celebrities that you have met. Whether you travel America for business or pleasure, enjoy your journey.
