Although the historical
sights and exhibits in Nauvoo can be seen in a weekend (all historic
sites are open on Sunday afternoons), we would recommend you consider
staying longer, especially during the busy summer season, or staying
an entire week allowing time to visit the temple, the family history
center, see all the entertainment, go horseback riding, go on a
river boat cruise, and take a few day trips such as northern Missouri
historical church sites, the home of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn in
Hannibal, or the Abraham Lincoln sites in New Salem and Springfield.
Make it a week of relaxation and fun, while building testimony and
spirituality in this unique environment.
