Most of my sketches were from a moving car, but we did stop to see Hannibal, MO. I'd seen signs for Mark Twain's house, and we enjoyed just walking around the small town. It's obviously benefitting from the Twain legacy, but Main Street is a pleasant place with lots of thriving businesses, and it was very quiet for us on a weekday in the not quite busy season yet. There was a great coffee shop in a gorgeous old building as well as historic sites to see, with the river right there as well. A good lunch stop for the day.
