Downtown in the Historic District, Hannibal, Missouri USA
USA
This is the historic downtown section of Hannibal, Missouri. First established in 1819, Hannibal is best known as the birthplace of Samuel Clemens or as he was better known by the name, Mark Twain. This panorama shows a portion of the old downtown section or historic district, down the street from the boyhood home of Mark Twain. There is a Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum. The town is also the setting for two of his most famous books, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. There are numerous locations that are associated with both Mark Twain and his fictional characters. Hannibal is located on the Mississippi River and the river is only approximately two blocks east of where this photo was taken. Some of the town’s main attractions are the nearby caves, including the Mark Twain Cave and Cameron Cave. Hannibal is located on Interstate 72 which crosses the Mississippi on the Mark Twain Memorial Bridge.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
