Folklore, Scary Stories, Monsters, Ghosts, Myths and Legends in South Dakota
Unexplained lights in Fort Sisseton State Park; ghosts including a man, a girl and a White Lady, especially on the 8th floor (particularly room 812 from which, in life, the White Lady mysteriously fell) in the Hotel Alex Johnson, Rapid City; many hauntings, including a headless phantom seeking his missing part, in McLaughlin, on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation; the skeletal music lover of the Badlands, which moves its skull in time to the melody and which may "borrow" violins if left within reach (it is said to play beautifully but do not follow if it walks away with your instrument [yes, there are those who have been so daring], as it will lead you to your death and its music will capture your soul); and the ghost of an old caretaker, as well as unexplained noises, in the Old Minnehaha County Courthouse (the Old Courthouse Museum) in Sioux Falls, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of South Dakota.
The screaming banshee that approaches those foolish enough to camp a mile south of the Watchdog (also called Watch Dog Butte, a natural formation shaped remarkably like the profile of a terrier) in the Badlands; the ghost of Sheriff Seth Bullock, the former owner, in the Historic Bullock Hotel, Deadwood; the jackalope (lepus temperamentalus), an antlered and unpredictable rabbit that may be related to the wolpertinger and the lepus cornutus of Germany; the Taku-He of the Pine Ridge Reservation, possibly a bigfoot (sasquatch) although some witnesses say that it wears a coat and a tall hat; and the piano that plays without human assistance in Saloon #10, Deadwood, which displays a chair said to be the one in which Wild Bill Hickock died while holding aces and eights, the Dead Man's Hand, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in South Dakota.
You cannot claim to have seen the world unless you have travelled in the USA. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe.

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 beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Bryce Canyon, the California coastline, the Grand Canyon, the Appalachians, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Everglades, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Niagara Falls, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, rodeos, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Route 66, the Adirondacks, the Florida Keys, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Mount Rushmore, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, Mount Rainier National Park, the Ozarks 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.
