My husband and I are considering going to Hannibal, MO later this month for our anniversary. It is close and we don't have a lot of money to spend. Neither of us have ever been there before. Has anyone been there or maybe you live around there? Can anyone recommend some places to see, eat, things to do? I've been on the "Visit Hannibal" website, but there isn't as much stuff as I once thought.

Hannibal Missouri being the home of Mark Twain, I imagine that there are several sites to visit.

Here's a few links I found.

Thank you for the links. I've been through those two already. There is the Mark Twain museum, the Mark Twain caves, and a ghost tour. I couldn't find anything else though.

Any ideas other than Hannibal?

I'm in SW MO. Have you been to Eureka Springs Ar? Of all the places around this region, it's very interesting and we enjoyed it. It would be a 4 hour drive for you. Or course, you've probably been to Branson. Elephant Rocks is amazing, but out in the middle of nowhere. I've not been to Hannibal myself since I was a kid.

I grew up just north of there in the Quincy, IL area and moved to the St Louis area in 93 but still visit often. Hannibal does have a few attractions like the Historic District and the Cave but not much else. I went to many concerts at the amphitheater back then but after I moved away I heard the residents complained about the noise and it was closed but I am not sure. I can ask my brother as he still lives up that way. I would also suggest searching Quincy as it is only a 25 min drive north of there and has much more to do. They have concerts at the convention center and many places with live entertainment. There used to be a comedy club there that was fun but I am not sure about that anymore either. There are also many wineries if you are into that. What type of activities are you looking for? I may be able to help you out more if I know what you are looking for. Quincy is SOO easy to find your way around so I could give you directions to anywhere you wanted to go. Let me know and I would be glad to help.

If you like historic tours check Quincy out. There are over 3000 houses there listed on the IL historic register and I am sure he can find some fishing. If you stay in Quincy check out Stoney Creek Lodge. It is a great place to stay. Hope you two have a good anniversary!
