    Kabar, Rudolf Valentino's Great Dane, who still lollops about the Los Angeles Pet Cemetery; the reputedly haunted Renaissance Los Angeles Airport hotel, part of the Marriott chain; the spectral woman who still supervises the Phoenix Inn oriental restaurant in Alhambra; the haunted fourth floor window and other mysteries at the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles; the haunted parking garage and eighteenth floor lounge of the Los Angeles Airport Marriott; the little phantom girl who knocks on the door of Room 42 and the spectral madame of Room 33 who are among the ghosts of the San Remo Hotel, San Francisco; the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe, claimed as employees by the Red River Lumber Company of Westwood; and the sirens, serpents and flying monsters that once inhabited Santa Barbara Island and which may, perhaps, be reawakened one day, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of California.

    The spectral prisoners of Alcatraz; the bigfoot or sasquatch of the northern forests; the ghostly barefoot woman of Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco; San Diego's haunted Horton Grand Hotel; the blue, brain-like ETs of Palos Verdes; the many ghosts of Elysian Park, Los Angeles, including a headless hound and a Lady in White; the spirits of Sacramento City Cemetery, including a little girl and a pit bull terrier; and the phantom policeman of Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, who hands out real but not legal speeding tickets, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in California.

    The ghostly couple who haunt the Marriott Anaheim Fairfield Inn, Anaheim; the spectral white deer of San Diego's Presidio Park; the Mennonite Lady in White of Adelaida Cemetery, who on Friday nights puts flowers on the grave of a child; the beautiful but sad Amanda, said to haunt Room 325 of the Vagabond Motel, San Diego; the ghost who still makes phone calls from Room 1007 of the Paso Robles Hotel, San Francisco; the male phantom of San Diego's luxurious US Grant Hotel; the wraiths of Camp Comfort County Park, which include a phantom horsewoman, a charred man, a headless man riding a motor bike, a bloody bride and a demonic hound that watches over the tomb of a vampire; and the spirits of Kate Morgan, a little boy and girl, the mistress of a millionaire, a Victorian lady who likes to dance and a former caretaker in San Diego's famous Hotel Del Coronado (used in the movie Some Like it Hot and remarkable for its Victorian wooden architecture), are more weird folklore associated with California.

    The spirit of schoolteacher Miss Mary Lake in Room 410 of the Queen Anne Hotel in San Francisco, which was once a girls' school; Santa Paula's horned, white and hairy anthropoid, the Billiwhack Monster; cowboys still searching for their gold in Rios Canyon, San Diego; the haunted swimming pool of Ramona Convent Secondary School in Alhambra, where bathers have their legs grabbed by unseen hands (the nun in white, in the library, is more harmless); the ghost of Claudia in the Mansions Hotel, San Francisco; the reputedly haunted Room 217 of the Marriott Hotel, Long Beach; Tahoe Tessie, Lake Tahoe's answer to Lake Champlain's Champ and to Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster; the many hauntings of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, which include a Lady in White in the reception area, children playing in the swimming pool, a man killed in the engine room and the mystery of room B340; and the ghostly sailors of the aircraft carrier USS Hornet in Alameda, are yet more strange folktales of California.

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