The Legends Of North America

For nearly two months now, we’ve toured the continent of North America – from Mexico, to Canada and the 50 United States in between – and discovered some unique legends. We’ve seen that Bigfoot roams a wide swath of the land and has many, many cousins.

We’ve met a mysterious White Lady who appears in several states in various haunting ways. We’ve seen a couple of cousins to Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster. We’ve heard tales of witches, ghosts and goblins that prowl the night and haunt our dreams.

Looking Back At The Legends Of North America

In America there are plenty of places to find the supernatural lurking about.

Remember this statue in Iowa?

We’ve read about terrible accidents, heartbreaking tragedies and horrific crimes that have left restless spirits behind in their wake. From a schoolhouse in Nebraska where a schoolteacher murdered her pupils and threw their heads into a nearby river.

To a haunted hotel in California where a blonde bombshell remains eternally beautiful as a ghost in a mirror. To a bar for vampires in New Orleans. A graveyard in Iowa with a sinister statue and a gravestone that causes passing cars to crash.

We’ve found gates to hell and a state that seems to be a real-life Supernatural home for the Devil himself. We’ve found more than our fair share or roads and bridges to avoid at all costs too.

We’ve touched on hundreds of urban legends during our tour.

Which Ones Caught Your Eye?

In the meantime, enjoy your weekend. But rest up. Because starting on Monday we head over to Europe. And you know there are centuries worth or urban legends just waiting to greet us with open arms… and fangs… and other things that go bump in the night.

See you on Monday. If you dare…
