The bigfoot seen in Hillsboro (could it have been MoMo?); hauntings of the historic Savoy Hotel and Grill in Kansas City, including that of Betsy Ward who, in the nineteenth century, died in her bath in room 505, as well as the spectre of Fred Lightner and, on the fourth floor, a little girl in Victorian dress, not to mention the strange behaviour of the elevator, which sometimes avoids the fourth floor and sometimes refuses to leave it; strange phenomena at the Kemp Mansion Restaurant and Inn, St Louis; the shadow people, with glowing red eyes, that lurk in the town of Maryville; the large, black, feline Ozark Howler, the glowing eyes of which may cause the death of those it looks upon; the pteradactyl of Altamont; the ghost of a young boy in Sauer Castle, Kansas City; the flying, fire-breathing dragon that was seen from a steamboat in the 1850s; the phantom of a weeping Native American woman who, on moonlit nights, repeats her death jump from a cliff in Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park (Creve Coeur Park), in St Louis County, where she tried to join her late husband in the spirit world; and the Spook Light of the Devil's Promenade, near Joplin (is it a lantern held by a ghostly miner or headless Native American, or is it the spectral light of Native American lovers who died in a lover's pact?), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Missouri.

It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. Camelopard suggests using well-known companies for your hotel reservations.
