Hannibal, Mo day 1

While it has been awhile since I posted a travel post, it was past due. While we have been traveling, just to the same places. I figured how many times can you write about the same experiences. But here we are! Traveling to some different places!

So we took another trip with our 22 month old toddler. This time we went to Hannibal, MO. (https://www.visithannibal.com). Hannibal is best known as the birth place of Mark Twain. Author of such works as The Adventures of Huck Fin and Tom Sawyer.

We got into town a little after 1 pm on a Wednesday. This is a small town. Much smaller than Branson. Since we had time to kill before we could check in we decided to walk around downtown. A few shops were closed for good others just tell later. We walked around in some antique shops. One shop was a chocolate shop. It was very good. It was called, Chocolaterie Stam. (https://stamchocolate.com). It was a hit with toddlers.

For dinner we had Italian at a place called The Brick Oven. (https://www.classicwfl.com/customers/hannibalbrickoven/contact.php). I had the beef ravioli. It was very good. They have a kids menu with crayons. On the tables they have butcher paper for kids to color on too if they so desire. Worth trying.

More adventures in Hannibal to come!
