If you are near Hannibal, stop and take a snapshot with the World's Largest Mug of Root Beer. It rotates 50 feet in the air. Then before going on to see all the Mark Twain offerings, sit out on the deck of the Mark Twain Dinette and have a mouth-watering root beer float.

It is the sign-on-a-pole for the Mark Twain Family Restaurant. At first I thought it was a cup of coffee, but when we learned that the restaurant had homemade root beer we decided it was a mug of that instead. Pretty good food too!
