If your trip to Cairo is all organized but your itinerary is looking a bit empty, let us give you a helping hand.If you’re looking for a reason to see what lies outside the immediate center, Fort Defiance is it. Need another one? Ballard Wildlife Management Area is also worth the short trip out.
See what’s going on in nearby Cape Girardeau. What’s 30 miles when you have your own rental car? The journey there is half the fun! Isle Casino Cape Girardeau, Lazy L Safari Park and Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center alone make the drive out here worthwhile. The locals will also likely point you in the direction of Metropolis, 30 miles away. If you only have time for one attraction here, let it be Harrah’s Metropolis. (But we’d also highly recommend Superman Statue and Fort Massac State Park.)

Sometimes it’s all about the journey, which makes your car choice important. If you’re about to embark on an epic road trip around Cairo, a comfortable SUV could be the perfect solution.

All you need to do is decide what’s the best fit, throw your bags in the trunk, and hit the road.
There’s a fair bit more to driving around Cairo than just sliding behind the wheel and firing up the engine. Brush up on the main local traffic rules here:
People drive on the right-hand side of the road in Cairo. Even though you may be comfortable with the traffic rules, it’s always smart to drive with extra care on roads that are unfamiliar.
Being a smaller city, finding a parking spot in Cairo is a relatively easy task. Once you’ve nabbed one, read the signs carefully. You may be penalized if you don’t follow the rules and regulations.
As with many cities, the roads are generally busy in the hours before and after work. However, with a population of around 2,500, traffic isn’t a major problem in Cairo.
Generally, your car rental company will bill the fined amount to your credit card, including local surcharges. Or they may provide your contact details to local law enforcement agencies, who’ll then issue a fine straight to you.
