    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 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 headless horseman of Whitmire in Hall County, sometimes heard rather than seen, who rides straight at his victims before disappearing; 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 pillar on Broad Street, Augusta, to which slaves were once chained and which causes the death of anyone who attempts to remove it; Altamaha-ha, the green sea serpent that haunts the area near the Altamaha River estuary; 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.

    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 many hauntings (some in animal form) of Towns County, where the Hiwassee (Hiawassee) River forms on Rocky Mountain; the vengeful old woman who at night led several unsuspecting Native Americans to their doom at Toccoa Falls; the revellers of Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, who do not realise that the plantation house burned down long ago; the spectres of Confederate officers and their ladies who still promenade on the River Walk, Augusta; the elderly woman whose ghost haunts the grand, antebellum Hay House in Macon; a stream that rejuvenates all who bathe in it (is its source the Fountain of Youth in Florida?); and The velociraptor-like Georgia Raptor, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Georgia.


    Be as familiar with famous places as you might like to be with famous people. Minneapolis, Skagway, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Detroit, Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, Seattle, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Boston, Santa Fe, Juneau, Atlantic City, Dallas, San Francisco, New Orleans, Corpus Christi, Los Angeles, St Louis, Indianapolis, New York, San Diego, Savannah, Kansas City, Lake Tahoe, Washington DC, Sitka, Anchorage, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Honolulu, Albuquerque, Sacramento and Fairbanks. If you have seen those cities, you have at least seen the most famous ones in the USA. Visiting all fifty states is something that even most Americans cannot manage but it is possible to visit those cities, as well as other iconic destinations such as Mount Rushmore, Route 66, Yellowstone National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Disney resorts, Glacier Bay National Park, the Appalachians, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Ozarks, the Adirondacks, Niagara Falls, the Florida Keys, the Everglades, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Bryce Canyon, the Okefenokee Swamp, rodeos, the California coastline, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone and Mount Rainier National Park. Casually mentioning places that you have visited can be as impressive as mentioning the names of celebrities that you have met. Camelopard suggests using well-known companies for your hotel reservations.
