Love the shops. Little bit of everything while keeping with the Mark Twain theme. Easy walk. Lots of variety. A few museums thrown into the mix along with restaurants and dessert shops.

Not a huge number of shops, but there are some fun ones downtown. There are also a couple off the beaten path that you'll want to stop at.

This is a great little historic town. Everything is so close and convenient. People were very friendly and willing to help when you needed it.

We only spent a day and half in Hannibal so we couldn't spend a lot of time downtown, but after leaving Mark Twain's Boyhood Home, we wandered the downtown for a little while. There are great little restaurants and lots of fun shops.
