    Monsters, Scary Stories, Legends, Ghosts, Folklore and Myths in Virginia

    Card playing pirates and ghostly victims of a Native American attack at Carter's Grove; 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); the hauntings of the Wayside Inn, Middletown, continuously serving its guests, living or spectral, since 1797; Lucy, a phantom in the Olde Towne Inn, Manassas, who has the power to levitate people; the magical waters of the underground Lost River below Natural Bridge, which make everyone who drinks from them return; 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 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, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Virginia.

    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 Richmond Vampire, popularly (and perhaps unfairly) associated with the tomb of William Wortham Pool in Holywood Cemetery, Richmond; 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 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); 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; George, the invisible ghost of Altavista Combined Middle and High School; and 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, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Virginia.

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

    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. We hope that you found today's Camelopard tip useful.
