When we arrived in Hannibal it was hot and we were craving some ice cream. A local tourist guide recommended Becky's Ice Cream Parlor. Becky's is a small hole-in-the-wall shop, selling nik-naks and various sundries. In the back of the shop is a small freezer with several flavors of ice cream. I'm not sure if Becky is the person who... More

Step inside Becky's and you are definitely stepping back in time. Nice little selection of ice cream and lots of old time toys and books to look through as well. A stop worth while as you stroll down Main Street.

Such a fun little place to take children for an ice cream cone....and the adults loved it, as well. The assortment would rival any Baskin Robbins! The person behind the counter was so friendly and wanted to delight every customer!

So the ice cream is great, but where are all your flavors. The staff watches your every move. Once I entered with my mom and there was no one there we thought. We waited probably 3 minutes to get ice cream when some finally came out and served us with no apologie. He probably had no idea we were waiting... More

Looking for a quick treat before heading out town, we stopped in here. They serve Blue Bunny ice cream, which is good, I was just hoping for more variety. Perhaps we should have tried one of their soda fountain beverages instead. The man serving us was very nice, and the prices were good. Interesting selection of novelties and nostalgia for... More

We wanted a snack before we left Hannibal Mo to get back on the road. Becky's was open. We had found huckleberries in other gift shops and asked if she had the ice cream. We so pleased when she said yes. We asked for a milkshake and when she gave it to us it was overflowing the cup. It was... More

The ice cream was very good, and there was lots of stuff to look at and buy. They had everything from candy to metal signs and even toys. They also had old type games on the tables that you could play with.

After hiking up to the lighthouse, we took our boys here for some ice cream. They loved it! They got to pick their cone type and ice cream type...they were excited to be able to pick more than one flavor. They sat and ate ice cream and played games while we took a break and cooled down.

They had huckleberry ice cream! We went twice on our trip and still talk about how much we could go for a chocolate and huckleberry milkshake. Great staff and lots of fun.

We stopped in for ice cream and checked out the items they have for sell. The ice cream was very good. They offered several other food items, along with sodas.
