Cape Girardeau is a large and beautiful city located in the state of Missouri. It is home to a large population of just about 40,000 people. On a very impressive note, even with such a number, it is only recognized as the 17th largest city in the state. However, it is the home of the state’s university.
In such a massive town, it is obvious that there are enough attractions for days of enjoyment. However, not everyone can be there for very long and if you are looking for some great romantic activities for you and a significant other, it helps to have a roadmap planned before getting to the destination. Therefore, this list is a compilation of some of the best activities to engage in as a couple.
Pitter’s Café and Lounge
Kicking off the list is a place that is great for both getting some good drinks and light food items while enjoying a relaxing atmosphere in each other’s company. While it is a great place to visit during the day time, this venue is best experienced in the night time as this is when most of the cool stuff that you can enjoy together takes place.
Experiences such as Karaoke are great for bringing couples closer together as there is usually an audience watching and it takes each person leaning on the other to break the confidence barriers that may interfere with the ability to focus and sing. Though you may not be professionals, these kinds of experiences are perfect for bonding.
If you prefer to hang back and watch other talent, the location is famous for allowing local bands and individual musicians to show what they can do. You never know what you are getting before you listen to a non-mainstream artiste and in many cases, you can find yourself pleasantly surprised with what you may hear.
Wehrenberg Theatres Inc
It may be sort of weird for you to hear that one of the things you should check out when visiting a remote destination is to go to the cinema but this one puts a slight spin on the vanilla movie experience that you are used to.
The cinema boasts the innovative and well renowned RealD 3D technology, has stadium class seating, and offers free refills on popcorn purchased at the concession stand, which is not a common occurrence.
If there happens to be a romantic movie in cinemas during your trip to Cape Girardeau, take the two hours and check it out in the Wehrenberg Theatres for the experience with each other.
Lazy L Safari Park
Seeing the soft and caring side of the one you love and expressing your own is great for bonding in a relationship. Clearly, this can be done by simply caring for each other, however, you gain a new angle and appreciation when the care is directed at a few animals as opposed to being directed at you.
The Lazy L Safari Park is one of the main tourist attractions for couples in the city and the natural aesthetic has a lot to do with that. The design of the park is one which has a collection of barns and open areas that house a variety of interesting animals.
Not only is the natural feel a great experience to enjoy together but it also gives you both the chance to get close to the animals while you enjoy being close to each other.
Cape Girardeau County Parks
Parks are well known for being one of the most romantic places for romantic outings. This is mostly because of the simplicity associated with them. There are usually no big distractions and, therefore, the opportunity is presented to focus on each other as opposed to placing focus elsewhere.
This entry on the list is sort of a collection of all the parks in the city as they are maintained and run by a single group and boast strikingly similar features. The obvious and one of the more intimate ones is open space to traverse so you can be alone together with the one you love.
There are also dedicated picnic areas. Consider taking the essentials you need and having a picnic together. It is a bit of a dying tradition, however, the intimacy you feel from having one is unmatched by many other activities.
Other attractions include biking and hiking trails if you feel like going on a mini adventure together.
Auburn Place Hotel & Suites, Cape Girardeau
A hotel room is not necessarily a romantic place to visit, however, there are things that both you and the design of the hotel can have in place to make it so.
Auburn Place Hotel and Suites, Cape Girardeau is one such place and it has a relatively low cost. The staff at the hotel goes over and beyond to ensure that your stay exceeds expectations and all you need to do is let them know ahead of your stay that you are there for a romantic getaway. Once you do that, let them take care of the rest and an air of intimacy and romance is likely to sweep you off your feet as soon as you enter your room.
The location also has a cozy jacuzzi, which is perfect for a close, personal style of interaction when the stars and the moon are overhead. You can also enjoy a game of table tennis with each other in addition to the other usual things a hotel provides.
West Park Lanes
The final entry on the list is a bowling alley. Bowling is an excellent choice as it fosters friendly competition and fun, which are both elements that go a far way in setting up a romantic evening. The lanes are all synthetic and there’s no need to worry about scoring as it is all managed electronically. If you prefer to watch experienced players go at it, there are numerous tournaments and leagues that take place at the location.
If you feel like grabbing a quick bite, feel free to head over to the snack bar where you can purchase and share a pizza, get some snacks, and enjoy soft drinks.
