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); Altamaha-ha, the green sea serpent that haunts the area near the Altamaha River estuary; the elderly woman whose ghost haunts the grand, antebellum Hay House in Macon; the spectres of Confederate officers and their ladies who still promenade on the River Walk, Augusta; 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; the revellers of Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, who do not realise that the plantation house burned down long ago; and the vengeful old woman who at night led several unsuspecting Native Americans to their doom at Toccoa Falls, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Georgia.
The phantom of Edwin Booth, brother of Abraham Lincoln's asassin, in Springer Opera House, Columbus; 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 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 pillar on Broad Street, Augusta, to which slaves were once chained and which causes the death of anyone who attempts to remove it; 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; The velociraptor-like Georgia Raptor; the headless horseman of Whitmire in Hall County, sometimes heard rather than seen, who rides straight at his victims before disappearing; and a stream that rejuvenates all who bathe in it (is its source the Fountain of Youth in Florida?), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.
The USA is one of the most developed and technologically advanced countries in the world, yet has preserved much of its wilderness and beautiful scenery. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Albuquerque, Fort Lauderdale, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, Sacramento, Phoenix, New York, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Fairbanks, San Francisco, Skagway, Honolulu, Seattle, Philadelphia, St Louis, Dallas, Kansas City, Juneau, Savannah, Salt Lake City, Sitka, Minneapolis, San Diego, Miami, Anchorage, Washington DC, Chicago, Boston, Corpus Christi, Santa Fe 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 The Appalachians, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Adirondacks, Route 66, the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, the wild west town of Tombstone, Mount Rainier National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Okefenokee Swamp, Yosemite National Park, the Ozarks, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Disney resorts, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Bryce Canyon, Glacier Bay National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the California coastline, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Florida Keys, Mount Rushmore, the Everglades and rodeos.
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. Happy travelling!
