Scary Stories, Legends, Folklore, Ghosts, Monsters and Myths in Wisconsin
The beings, possibly fairy folk, who live beneath Sinsinawa Mound; the carnivorous, forest dwelling hidebehind, which can conceal itself anywhere (you are safe if you drink beer around the campfire, as the hidebehind loathes the taste of alcohol); a young boy whose spirit haunts the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, where he died from a fall; the numerous hauntings and psychic phenomena of Manitowoc Place (formerly the Evergreen Inn Hotel) in Manitowoc; ghosts and unearthly screams at the haunted, historic and luxurious Retlaw Plaza Hotel in Fond du Lac; the legend of Maiden Rock, one of the sites said to be where the Native American maiden Winona leapt to her death because her father forbade her marriage to the man she loved; the fierce, horned and spined Hodag that may dwell in the woods around Rhinelander; and the spectral lady in a blue hat and the rather shabby male ghost that haunt the American Club Resort in Kohler, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Wisconsin.
The mischievious spirit of "Agatha", the cigar smoking ghost of William Karsten, the playful spectre of little Billy Karsten, as well as other hauntings and psychokinetic manifestations, at the Karsten Hotel (The Historic Karsten Inn) in Kewaunee; giant, finned serpents, as well as spirits and a powerful manitou, in Devil's Lake (Da-wa-kah-char-gra) where the Ho-Chunk nation still celebrate their spiritual rites; the Beast of Bray Road, possibly a a werewolf, seen near Elkhorn; ghostly chldren who haunt the Menominee Casino Resort and hotel in Keshena; tall tales of the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox, Babe (scholars regard Wisconsin as his true home and the earliest collected stories were probably in "Legends of Paul Bunyan, Lumberjack" published by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters); the ghost of Mr Pfister, who still walks his phantom dog, in the historic and pet friendly Pfister Hotel, in Milwaukee; the apparition of Adam Bobel (Boebel) seen in Central House, Boscobel, the site of his hotel and where Gideons International was founded; and many ghosts in Marquette University, Milwaukee, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Wisconsin.

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