The mercury keeps rising and the humidity makes it feel even hotter out … take advantage of the heat with these cool spots in Cape Girardeau!

2015 Cape Splash New Slides Playground Vortex

Cape Splash Family Aquatic Center

The littlest kiddos and the most adventurous teens will have buckets of fun at Cape Splash.  A splash pad and a zero-depth entry watery playground keep your little tykes playing and splashing all day, while mat racer slides, a vortex pool and more slides give your older kids and teenagers plenty to keep them busy.  The 750-foot lazy river and lounge chairs under shady umbrellas save the day for the parents, and affordable concessions and entry make this day of fun in the sun well within reach.

Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center

Enjoy the great outdoors from the air-conditioned coolness of the Nature Center.  Kids can climb through an over-sized beaver dam, make tracings of animal tracks, spot the queen bee in the indoor beehive and much more.  Hands-on exhibits for all ages in this free facility ensure entertainment for everyone in your family.

Discovery Playhouse 

Little ones can shop in the grocery store, practice dentistry skills, splash in the Secret Water Garden, learn about money at the bank, milk a cow at Grandma Ruth’s Farm, care for the babies in the nursery and watch balls zoom and whoosh through the tunnels of Air-Maze-ing Fun. You’ll have a hard time convincing your kid it’s time to leave Discovery Playhouse: A Children’s Museum!


Burn off all kinds of energy at LeBounce, an indoor inflatable playspace filled with bouncers galore.  Kids 10 and younger can jump, hop and skip in over 6,000 square feet of inflatable fun, with a special toddler zone for young children.
