Nauvoo is a small city in Hancock County, Illinois, United States, on the Mississippi River near Fort Madison, Iowa. Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get some historical perspective at Historic Nauvoo and Herbert Hoover National Historic Site. Venture out of the city with trips to Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg), Hannibal (Rockcliffe Mansion, Mark Twain Memorial Lighthouse, &more) and Snake Alley (in Burlington). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Nauvoo Temple, contemplate the long history of Joseph Smith Historic Site, take an in-depth tour of Kibbe Hancock Heritage Museum, and don't miss a visit to Brigham Young Home.
