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 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; the headless horseman of Whitmire in Hall County, sometimes heard rather than seen, who rides straight at his victims before disappearing; Altamaha-ha, the green sea serpent that haunts the area near the Altamaha River estuary; a stream that rejuvenates all who bathe in it (is its source the Fountain of Youth in Florida?); the many hauntings (some in animal form) of Towns County, where the Hiwassee (Hiawassee) River forms on Rocky Mountain; and the phantom of Edwin Booth, brother of Abraham Lincoln's asassin, in Springer Opera House, Columbus, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of 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. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Juneau, Skagway, Atlantic City, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Sacramento, St Louis, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, Honolulu, Indianapolis, Detroit, Miami, New York, Albuquerque, New Orleans, Lake Tahoe, Houston, Fairbanks, Boston, Sitka, San Francisco, Dallas, Las Vegas, Savannah, Corpus Christi, Santa Fe, Salt Lake City, Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix, San Diego and Anchorage 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, the Grand Canyon, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Ozarks, Yosemite National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, Bryce Canyon, the Everglades, Glacier Bay National Park, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Okefenokee Swamp, the Appalachians, Niagara Falls, Yellowstone National Park, the Disney resorts, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Florida Keys, the Adirondacks, the California coastline, Mount Rainier National Park, Route 66, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, rodeos, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii and Mount Rushmore.
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 at camelopard.com wish you a pleasant journey in the USA.
