Scary Stories, Monsters, Myths, Folklore, Ghosts and Legends in Michigan
The shampoo using and TV remote hiding ghost that haunts Wayne's Red Apple Restaurant and Inn in Wayne (the spectre is of a man allegedly murdered by a maid because he didn't give her a tip, so GIVE THE MAID A TIP); the ghosts of a man, a woman and a girl in the Blue Pelican Inn (formerly Murphy's Lamplight Inn) in Central Lake; the spirit of Amelia Earhart, said to haunt the Landmark Inn in Marquette; the Dogman, encountered since the nineteenth century; the ghost of Samuel Graczyk, a lumberman accidentally killed on the day of his wedding, at Deadman's Hill Scenic Overlook in Mackinaw State Forest; the werewolves (loups-garous / loup-garous) that plagued Detroit when it was a French community and which might, one day, be reawakened (could a waheela be mistaken for a werewolf - or vice versa?); and the phantom woman in the garden of Stafford's Perry Hotel, Petoskey, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Michigan.
Giant, lupine waheelas; the slender, man-eating hidebehind, a "fearsome critter" indeed, which can conceal itself behind any tree but which, unlike pink elephants, can be avoided by drinking alcoholic beverages; paranormal phenomena in the Henry hotel (formerly the Ritz Carlton) in Dearborn; tales of giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe (Oscoda is his official home, as the first Paul Bunyan story was published there but Ossineke has statues of Paul and Babe and the claims of other towns are disputed by Manistique, which also has a statue of Paul); strange occurrences in the Fenton Hotel, Fenton; the stone monster slain by Hiawatha, evidenced by large rocks on the eastern side of Grand Traverse Bay; and the Melon Heads (melonheads) of Felt Mansion, similar to those of Connecticut and, I believe, the source of the Catskill gnomes legend involving Rip van Winkle and Hendrik Hudson, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Michigan.
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. Phoenix, Houston, Savannah, Philadelphia, New York, Fairbanks, Chicago, Kansas City, Honolulu, Corpus Christi, Fort Lauderdale, St Louis, Sacramento, Miami, San Francisco, Santa Fe, Lake Tahoe, Detroit, Atlantic City, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, Anchorage, Washington DC, Atlanta, Juneau, Las Vegas, Sitka, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Seattle, San Diego, Boston, Indianapolis and Skagway 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 Niagara Falls, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Bryce Canyon, the Appalachians, the California coastline, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Mount Rainier National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Yellowstone National Park, rodeos, the Everglades, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Grand Canyon, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Adirondacks, the Ozarks, Yosemite National Park, Route 66, the Okefenokee Swamp, Mount Rushmore, the Florida Keys and the Disney resorts.
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. Happy travelling!
