Tales of Casey Jones and his locomotive, the Cannonball Express (Jones was actually a real hero who died in a collision in Mississippi - his home is still preserved in Jackson); the death song of a Cherokee maiden and her white lover, that is still sometimes heard near Chattanooga, at Walden Ridge (Wallen's Ridge) above the Tennessee River (the pair leapt to their deaths because her father forbade their marriage); the famous Bell Witch poltergeist haunting in the community of Adams; the phantom white stag of the Sequatchie Valley; and the phantom slaves sometimes seen on the verandah of The Hermitage near Nashville, once the home of "the people's president", Andrew Jackson, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Tennessee.
The treasure of Cumberland Heights, guarded by invisible and deadly hands; the Tennessee Troll seen in Campbell county (if you don't see a real one, you can buy a hand-crafted souvenir from A Troll in the Park, in Gatlinburg, Sevier county); rumours that Elvis is alive and well, although somewhat older (even though his ghost has allegedly been seen in a number of places, including his Graceland mansion in Memphis); the ghosts of Opryland, including a woman in black mourning weeds and the shade of Hank Williams; the black ghost dog and the headless bull, both harbingers of doom, that terrorise the Chatata Valley; and the ill-omened bleeding horse of the Great Smoky Mountains, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Tennessee.
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. Atlanta, Philadelphia, Lake Tahoe, Houston, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Fairbanks, Indianapolis, Detroit, Miami, Dallas, Honolulu, Skagway, Anchorage, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Seattle, Atlantic City, Albuquerque, Sitka, Corpus Christi, Boston, Washington DC, New Orleans, Juneau, Fort Lauderdale, St Louis, Las Vegas, Santa Fe, Chicago, San Francisco, Phoenix, New York and Savannah 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 Rodeos, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Yosemite National Park, the wild west town of Tombstone, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, the Florida Keys, the Everglades, Route 66, Mount Rushmore, the Ozarks, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the California coastline, Niagara Falls, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Disney resorts, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, the Adirondacks, the Okefenokee Swamp, Mount Rainier National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park 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. Good luck on your travels.
