The bedcovers provide false security. People died on this floor, on the ones above and below. The Jerome Grand Hotel's history has chapters written in blood. Souls at unrest loom, folks say. Pulling the sheets over your face won't hide the questions that hit seconds before slumber: Is the darkness empty, or is someone there? The caretaker who hanged himself in the boiler room. The handicapped man who wheeled himself off the balcony. The executive who shot himself in Room 32. The unfortunate maintenance man, Claude Harvey.

IT isn't often that a weekend getaway with a toddler revolves around a fire station and a high-altitude saloon whose patrons roar up on Harleys.

WESTERN ARIZONA London Bridge, Lake Havasu. If the Grand Canyon is the granddaddy of Arizona attractions, London Bridge is the prince. The span, which traces its royal roots to 1831 England, was purchased in 1971 for $2.4 million, but shipping was more than $4 million. A look at this blocky bridge is unaffecting, but when you walk it, you have to wonder in whose footsteps you're following -- Charles Dickens? Jack the Ripper?
