    The thirty-two benevolent ghosts of the historic Menger Hotel, close to the Alamo in San Antonio, including Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt (who recruited Rough Riders in the Menger Bar), the phantom of rancher Richard King in his former suite (the King Room), chambermaid Sallie White who still meticulously performs her duties in Victorian attire, a bespectacled lady in a blue dress who knits quietly in the lobby, a man in a buckskin jacket and unseen kitchen helpers; the ghost of a murdered call girl in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio; the phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo; Pecos Bill with his coyote family, his rattlesnake Shake (that served as his lasso) and his true love the catfish-riding Slue-Foot Sue (Neil Armstrong may have been the first MAN to set FOOT on the moon but Sue banged her HEAD on it many years earlier, after being thrown by Bill's appropriately named horse, Widow-Maker); the suicidal jumper who is said to still haunt his room at the Omni Austin Hotel; creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; and the groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.

    Home

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

    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.
