With some terrific road trip options available in the surrounding area, renting a car makes sense. Without one, it’d be much more difficult to enjoy everything that Cape Girardeau, 25 miles away, has to offer. Soak up the sights starting with Isle Casino Cape Girardeau, Lazy L Safari Park and Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center. Metropolis is another popular destination. It’s 30 miles away and offers an array of fascinating things to see and do. Harrah’s Metropolis, Superman Statue and Fort Massac State Park are only the start.
