The sleepy river town of Hannibal, lies just two hours up the scenic River Road from St. Louis but a world apart from the bustling city. Hannibal offers city slickers a chance to relish the past, not just the rich literary past of Mark Twain, Missouri’s most famous curmudgeon, or even the fictional histories of his characters. Hannibal also invites visitors to remember a time when the family vacation was a long drive in the family car to a quiet town, and this little trip includes historic homes, caves and riverboats.
