Hannibal in July during the annual Tom Sawyer Days is the time to go! Mud volleyball championships, whitewashing races, Tom and Becky contests, etc.

If you hike up Cardiff Hill, you'll see this statue whether you intend to or not! It's at the base of the hill and overlooks the Mississippi River. This is - of course - a necessary stop for folks on a Mark Twain pilgrimage.

You can stand next to the statute and have your picture taken. I loved to read Mark Twain's books when I was young so it feels great to be here in person and walk the streets and see the Mississippi River.

My 9 and 11 year old hiked all the way from the statue to the lighthouse. Great view of Main Street and miss river. Take the time to just strolll through town at sunset it's worth it.

It's a cool statue. Don't come hundreds of miles to see it though. Come hundreds of miles to eat at OLE PLANTERS RESTAURANT! this is what you come to Hannibal for! Just walk right down the street for a meal you will never forget! Chicken fried steak! BBQ beef and pork sandwiches! This is the secret to happiness!

This took us a while to locate, but when we did find it, we were glad that we took the time. Very well done. Good artist.
