The spectral lady in a blue hat and the rather shabby male ghost that haunt the American Club Resort in Kohler; giant, finned serpents, as well as spirits and a powerful manitou, in Devil's Lake (Da-wa-kah-char-gra) where the Ho-Chunk nation still celebrate their spiritual rites; the beings, possibly fairy folk, who live beneath Sinsinawa Mound; ghosts and unearthly screams at the haunted, historic and luxurious Retlaw Plaza Hotel in Fond du Lac; the numerous hauntings and psychic phenomena of Manitowoc Place (formerly the Evergreen Inn Hotel) in Manitowoc; the carnivorous, forest dwelling hidebehind, which can conceal itself anywhere (you are safe if you drink beer around the campfire, as the hidebehind loathes the taste of alcohol); many ghosts in Marquette University, Milwaukee; and the fierce, horned and spined Hodag that may dwell in the woods around Rhinelander, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Wisconsin.
The mischievious spirit of "Agatha", the cigar smoking ghost of William Karsten, the playful spectre of little Billy Karsten, as well as other hauntings and psychokinetic manifestations, at the Karsten Hotel (The Historic Karsten Inn) in Kewaunee; tall tales of the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox, Babe (scholars regard Wisconsin as his true home and the earliest collected stories were probably in "Legends of Paul Bunyan, Lumberjack" published by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters); the Beast of Bray Road, possibly a a werewolf, seen near Elkhorn; a young boy whose spirit haunts the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, where he died from a fall; ghostly chldren who haunt the Menominee Casino Resort and hotel in Keshena; the apparition of Adam Bobel (Boebel) seen in Central House, Boscobel, the site of his hotel and where Gideons International was founded; the legend of Maiden Rock, one of the sites said to be where the Native American maiden Winona leapt to her death because her father forbade her marriage to the man she loved; and the ghost of Mr Pfister, who still walks his phantom dog, in the historic and pet friendly Pfister Hotel, in Milwaukee, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Wisconsin.

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. From camelopard.com, a heartfelt Bon Voyage!
