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.
Come here the voices of the 19th Century echo across the Finger Lakes. First is the legacy of the Woman’s Rights Movement featuring Susan B Anthony’s home and other sights. Then enjoy a few Victorian Era mansions and local wine before you learn of Mark Twain’s summer home and the people and events that inspired him.
