Hannibal is a family friendly town with many activities to do. You can go explore caves on a tour at the Mark Twain Cave and Campground. There are many things to do at the historical downtown of Hannibal, such as visit the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum along with the Mark Twain Memorial Lighthouse. One of the things I like about Hannibal is the Sodalis Nature Preserve where you can go for a walk and see endangered bats fly out of the caves during sunset. Something I would change about Hannibal is to have more greenery around. Having plantation drives throughout the years would improve the environment and reduce pollution.

I thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere of Hannibal, MO. Downtown is one of my favorite spots to spend my time. It has a variety of homely vintage stores, coffee shops, restaurants, tours, and leisure spots. My favorites are Java Jive, which has some of the best coffee and food in town. I could eat their soup all day (considering they always have a soup of the day to try). Another place I really enjoy is B&B Theaters. Just by signing up for their backstage pass (which is free) you get a free medium popcorn. I've been their often in the past year and they always keep it clean. Downtown is beautiful at night, but sometimes I can feel unsafe in other parts of Hannibal.
Home of Mark Twain! Hannibal thrives off the tourism, the festivals are a must see! Spend 4th of July weekend next to the mighty Mississippi and enjoy the fireworks, crafts, carnival, and some delicious local treats. You can also enjoy some of the local traditions of fence painting, frog jumping, or the pie eating contest. If you can't make it for the summer make sure to come in the fall for the folklife festival. Enjoy local music, cider, crafts, and many of the warm treats. There are many things to discover when coming to Hannibal.
