Scary Stories, Ghosts, Folklore, Monsters, Legends and Myths in Virginia
The creation, by the Great Spirit, of the Natural Bridge over Cedar Creek, Rockbridge County, for the benefit of the Monacan tribe (their women and children escaped across the bridge while their menfolk were able to defend the narrow path from a larger number of Powhatan warriors); spirits of the historic and very haunted Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach, including a phantom cat and a spectral former employee who tells people that there are ghosts on the higher floors; the Native American lovers who leapt to their deaths from Jump Mountain, near Lexington; the hatchet wielding Bunny Man (Bunnyman Ghost) of Colchester Overpass (Bunny Man Bridge) near Clifton; mysteries of the Great Dismal Swamp, including a spectral raft with two occupants, illuminated by a bottle of fireflies, on Lake Drummond (the occupants are the ghosts of a man who went mad with grief and that of his lover, whose spirit the man desperately sought in the swamp); Lucy, a phantom in the Olde Towne Inn, Manassas, who has the power to levitate people; and the magical waters of the underground Lost River below Natural Bridge, which make everyone who drinks from them return, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Virginia.
George, the invisible ghost of Altavista Combined Middle and High School; card playing pirates and ghostly victims of a Native American attack at Carter's Grove; hauntings of Woodlawn Plantation, Mount Vernon, including the beautiful and fragrant ghost of Eleanor "Nelly" Custis (near the boxwood trees) and the well in the gift shop that may be a portal to another world; spooky goings on in the Martha Washington Inn and Spa, Abingdon, including Civil War bloodstains appearing on new carpets and a phantom woman seeking her lover; the Richmond Vampire, popularly (and perhaps unfairly) associated with the tomb of William Wortham Pool in Holywood Cemetery, Richmond; spooky tales of the Inn at Willow Grove in Orange, haunted by ghostly foosteps and two Confederate soldiers who sit and converse under a tree; the phantom boats of the Rappahannock River, including the Black Barge, a portent of Republican victory in the elections of Tappahannock and Essex County; and the hauntings of the Wayside Inn, Middletown, continuously serving its guests, living or spectral, since 1797, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Virginia.

America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Indianapolis, San Francisco, Atlantic City, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Houston, Sitka, Philadelphia, Albuquerque, Savannah, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Washington DC, Phoenix, Santa Fe, Kansas City, Sacramento, Miami, Fairbanks, Lake Tahoe, New York, Honolulu, Anchorage, Chicago, St Louis, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Corpus Christi, San Diego, Skagway, Boston, Juneau, Detroit, New Orleans and Dallas. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Yellowstone National Park, Route 66, the Appalachians, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Yosemite National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Everglades, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Niagara Falls, Glacier Bay National Park, the Florida Keys, the Ozarks, the Disney resorts, the wild west town of Tombstone, Mount Rainier National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the California coastline, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Grand Canyon, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, rodeos, Mount Rushmore, Bryce Canyon and the Adirondacks are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
