Hannibal, MO Overnighter
We’re heading to Hannibal, Missouri to explore all things Mark Twain! We’ll arrive there by lunchtime to enjoy Fiddlesticks Restaurant, a local favorite. Then we’ll go to the Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher Greeting at the Interpretive Center where they’ll answer questions, pose for photos, and hand out welcome bags from the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. From there, we’ll go to Mark Twain’s Boyhood Home and Museum where we’ll enjoy a self-guided tour of the famed author's Rockwell paintings. We’ll head downtown to LaBinnah Bistro for dinner, where they have traditional cuisine from all over the world. Then we’ll finish off the day with a live performance at Planters Barn Theater, where we’ll be entertained by Richard Garey as Mark Twain himself or Clark Cruikshank in the Tales of Huck Finn.
After breakfast at the hotel, Day 2 will start with Rockcliffe Mansion, one of America’s Castles! This turn of the century mansion overlooks the Mississippi and contains many original furnishings. The mansion is also notable for the fact that Mark Twain spoke from the grand staircase in 1907 during his last visit to Hannibal. From there we will head back to downtown Hannibal for shopping, walking to the lighthouse and newly renovated riverfront, and disbursing independently for lunch. Then we’ll meet at the Interpretive Center and head to the Mark Twain Cave Complex for a guided tour of the city followed by a guided tour of the cave that inspired tales like The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Next will be the Cave Hollow West Winery where we’ll enjoy a sampling of local Missouri wines and independent touring of the winery. We’ll head back to the hotel to rest for a bit before boarding the Mark Twain Riverboat Dinner Cruise, a 2-hour cruise with a delicious buffet and live music.
We’ll have breakfast at the hotel Friday morning and then head back to Burlington, with a few stops along the way, including lunch somewhere on the route.
