There are so many little towns that do great things for the holidays, but Hannibal tops the list and even thinks so too. The website put Hannibal as a must-stop town to visit for the holidays and I could agree more. With the Christmas Living windows and the downtown holiday decorations, the Victorian Christmas Festival has carriage rides and more. It really is a magical time of year to visit Hannibal.

Most of us who live close don't take advantage of the small-town charm Hannibal brings every season, but I urge you to bring the family and gather with some friends and enjoy an evening out in Hannibal. The website even described Hannibal as a town straight out of a Norman Rockwell Painting.
