Greetings from Hannibal, MO, Mark Twain's boyhood hometown, my theme for this year's AtoZ Challenge.
Mark Twain Riverboat:
Twain's Town wouldn't be complete without the riverboat. The Mississippi River is one of our main attractions. I highly recommend the hour long cruise aboard the Mark Twain Riverboat. Bring your sunscreen. Last time I went, my face matched my hair. You'll learn more history about Twain and Hannibal in one hour than you ever thought possible. A dinner cruise is available later in the day.
If you can read the fine print on the sign below, you can see that Hannibal was known as Glascock's Landing named after Stephen Glascock.
The American Queen:
The American Queen (along with the Mississippi Queen and Delta Queen) pulls into Hannibal several times a year. These humongous steamboats are not to be confused with our small riverboat. Some of these cruises start in St. Paul and end in St. Louis. Whether you board the local attraction or hop on the big boat for a week long excursion, be sure to pack your camera and sunscreen. Even though the Mississippi isn't the Caribbean, you'll still embark on a first-class Mark Twain adventure.
Have you ever ridden on a steamboat? Taken a real cruise? Have no idea what to post for the last few days of the challenge?
