    Ghosts in all of the rooms (including one that still sometimes leaves tips for the maid) at Miss Molly's Hotel bed and breakfast, once a bordello, in Fort Worth; the sounds of happy children heard in the Hamilton Hotel, Laredo, even when no children are near; the Confederate soldier and the phantom boy nicknamed "Jimmy" who still roam Tremont House hotel in Galveston; the emerald-headed serpent, a great deity that inhabits a crystal cave in the Gulf of Mexico but which, according to Native Americans, may be seen from the coast, when it ventures to the surface with a great display of light; creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; the phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo; and the alleged hauntings of the historic Excelsior House Hotel in Jefferson, including a light-fingered woman in black with a baby, a perfumed lady, a headless man and a boy who wakes people up to ask whether they want breakfast (it is even claimed that Steven Spielberg had a supernatural experience at the hotel, the guests of which have included Oscar Wilde and Ulysses S Grant, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.

    You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Lake Tahoe, Anchorage, Houston, San Francisco, Sitka, Juneau, Corpus Christi, Fairbanks, Dallas, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Miami, Skagway, Phoenix, St Louis, Philadelphia, Savannah, Boston, Santa Fe, New Orleans, Washington DC, Sacramento, Honolulu, Detroit, Atlantic City, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Seattle, Indianapolis, Albuquerque and Kansas City 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 Yellowstone National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Ozarks, Route 66, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, the Disney resorts, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the California coastline, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Bryce Canyon, Mount Rushmore, the Everglades, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Mount Rainier National Park, the Florida Keys, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Appalachians, Yosemite National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, rodeos and the Adirondacks.

    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.
