I am flying into St Louis on Sunday and want to drive to Hannibal and spend the afternoon seeing all of the Mark Twain sites so my time in Hannibal is limited.
My question is should I take the fastest route which I guess is Rt. 61 or should I take Rt. 79 which I guess is called "The Great River Road"? How much longer would that route take and is it worth doing? I would appreciate any input.
