The protective spirit of Madeline Dahlgren who haunts the historic Old South Mountain Inn in Boonsboro; the werewolf-like dewayo (dwayyo), seen in the vicinity of Middletown and, appropriately, Wolfsville; the goatman of Beltsville, possibly a mad scientist who was a victim of one of his own experiments, who swings his axe at passing cars; the lady in white who haunts the Yellow Turtle Inn in New Windsor; and the several hauntings of the sloop USS Constellation in Baltimore, including sailors, officers, a surgeon's assistant and a former watchman, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Maryland.
The modern myth of the Blair Witch of Burkittsville, created by moviemakers; the lady in gray who haunts the Edgar Allan Poe House in Baltimore; the story of the Native American maiden of Indian Head, who swam for two miles across the Potomac to prove that she would risk her life to reach her lover, a captive of her chief held at a point on the Virginia bank; the fearsome snallygaster, a tentacled predatory bird or dragon that stalks the Blue Ridge Mountains; and the ghostly games of bowls, played at Oyster Point, between Captain Kidd (who had committed himself to Satan by burying his bible) and his demonic companions, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Maryland.

America welcomes careful drivers; also pilots and passengers, for that matter. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Santa Fe, Atlanta, Phoenix, Savannah, Atlantic City, Juneau, Honolulu, Albuquerque, Houston, San Francisco, Chicago, Anchorage, Lake Tahoe, Boston, New Orleans, Washington DC, Sitka, Miami, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, St Louis, Seattle, Salt Lake City, New York, Fairbanks, Skagway, Corpus Christi, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Dallas, Sacramento, Minneapolis, Detroit, Kansas City and San Diego 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, Mount Rainier National Park, Yosemite National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Disney resorts, Glacier Bay National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, the California coastline, Mount Rushmore, Niagara Falls, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Bryce Canyon, the Ozarks, the Adirondacks, the Grand Canyon, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Everglades, Route 66, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Florida Keys, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, rodeos, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
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.
