Last week I asked about suggestions for places in Missouri to go for a potential vacation or weekend getaway.  Hannibal Missouri was mentioned.  I first heard about Hannibal when I was living in Mexico Missouri.  One of my colleagues did a remote from Mark Twain Lake.  In less than 3 hours you can be there from Sedalia.  There are quite a lot of activities that I think would interest you, depending on your personal likes.  And yes, that whole Mark Twain home thing.  You can click HERE for a more detailed list of activities if you want to visit.  Allow me to highlight a few.

Mark Twain's home and museum is certainly a must if you plan to visit. There is also a place where Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn painted a fence.

If you want to do a bit of exploring, and you are a hiker or like the outdoors, there is the Mark Twain Cave Complex, that will give you a few of some really cool views.  As you can see.

After exploring the caves, there are options for lodging.  If you are more of a camper, there are places to pitch a tent, or bring your camper or trailer.  The Mark Twain Cave Campground is pretty sweet.

Now I do not profess to be a big wine connoisseur but if you like a good glass of wine, then the Cave Hollow West Winery might be a place to relax.  Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.

There are a lot more options available to you if you are looking to explore Hannibal.  There are options for shows, plenty of shopping, and places to dine.  Might be worth a drive there this summer.  Learn a bit more about the great author, relax, and explore.  Just make sure to do it before the Missouri State Fair.    :)
