Spending time with your special someone is so simple with a weekend away in Cape Girardeau devoted to just the two of you.
Where to Stay
Check into a hotel with all the amenities, or try something new with a night at a bed and breakfast! Cape Girardeau has several unattended bed & breakfast properties if you’re looking for truly unique accommodations.
What to Do
Indulge in a couples massage at eDen Spa in downtown Cape Girardeau and start your weekend on a relaxing note.
Take a peaceful drive to a local winery and enjoy the views of grapevines and rolling hills while you sip your way through the wine or beer list. Hunter Valley Winery is just a 15-minute drive from downtown Cape Girardeau, and a little bit further (but well worth the drive for the views of the creek!) is Apple Creek Vineyard & Winery.
Stroll historic downtown Cape Girardeau hand in hand and duck into quirky antique shops and local boutiques. Cape’s Cream of the Crust is outfitted as a vintage soda shop and makes for a romantic spot to grab a scoop of homemade ice cream. Pick up truffles or create a custom cocoa creation for a late night snack at Chocolate Works.
Where to Eat
Spend the evening lingering over a leisurely meal at one of Cape Girardeau fine dining restaurants. 36 Restaurant and Bar and Celebrations have exceptional ambiance, and Farraddays is an upscale steakhouse that offers refined food in a relaxed atmosphere.
Finish off your day with a nightcap at Cask, where you can sample small production beer and spirits in their cozy lounge.
