Several Hannibal businesses received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence Award for 2017.



In the digital age, many people use online reviews written by people they have never met to decide what they are going to do on vacation. For businesses in Hannibal, they would not have it any other way.


Several Hannibal businesses received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence Award for 2017. According to its website, TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence “honors select accommodations, attractions, and eateries that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.”


“We are thrilled that so many of our attractions, lodging properties and restaurants received this honor,” states Gail Bryant, director of the Hannibal Missouri Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We pride ourselves on superb hospitality in Hannibal, and the winners really demonstrate that commitment.”
