The Hannibal Bicentennial Committee is encouraging everyone, citizens and visitors alike, to take in all Hannibal has to offer during the Bicentennial and beyond. One of the first things featured on the Bicentennial website is "200 (plus) things to do in Hannibal."


"Celebrating 200 years of our past and looking forward to Hannibal’s future, we want to encourage everyone to look around and consider the wonderful opportunities Hannibal currently offers," explains Cindy Lovell, Event Coordinator for Hannibal’s Bicentennial.


Plenty of experiences are free and great for couples and families, like enjoying the view from Lover’s Leap or trying to catch a glimpse of a black squirrel in Riverview Park.


While "200+ things to do" sounds like a tall order, it’s a great way to showcase the places, experiences, and beauty that is in Hannibal.
