Come spend a day like Mark Twain, leisurely cruising the Mississippi with 100 miles of scenic shoreline and peaceful towns passing quietly behind your great paddlewheel. Then explore the town of Hannibal, home to Tom Sawyer & Becky Thatcher and their friend Huck. With your imagination you can travel to places in time, best described in literature.
Hannibal is one of Missouri’s best tourism destinations. As the boyhood home of Mark Twain, Hannibal is famously known as the setting for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. But there’s also trains and ghost tours and caves and so much more.
