  • You must go up the Steep Hill to see the lovers leap, it is worth the climb. You can see much of Hannibal and up and Down the mighty Mississippi. It is truly a beautiful sight. And of course you'll read the story of the Indians who jumped off Lover's leap. You don't want to miss this climb because it is truly worth it. You will also get to see the house built on the ledge that is gorgeous. No you can't go in it but you'll get to drive by it.
  • I went here as a kid and thought it was beautiful. The history behind it was also amazing. I went here on Father's day to see if it was still as cool as when I was 12 and yes it definitely was. There had also been flooding in the area which shut a lot of things down in the area which you can see in the pictures.
