7 family friendly stops in Cape Girardeau, MO

Beautiful Cape Girardeau, MO is located just a few hours south of St Louis, MO. This historic town was founded in 1793, and while it old it is still bursting with many family friendly attractions.

Lazy L Safari is a Walk-Thru Zoo that houses fifty different species of exotic animals. Many of the animals are hands-on meaning you have the opportunity to feed and pet the animals. You can get up close and personal with the pygmy goats, or watch the antelope and zebras frolic through the fields. The zoo is in a country setting, picnic lunches are welcome and suggested, and new animals arrive yearly. Lazy L Safari is open daily Memorial Day thru Labor Day, but only opens on weekends in the months of April, May, September, and October. Visit their website for admission prices, schedule of special events, and hours of operation. 
Discovery Playhouse is the perfect indoor escape for the tots in your gang. This 7,500 square foot children’s museum is full of simple yet educational fun. Children can experience what is like to grocery shop, work at a bank, go to the dentist or be the dentist, and work on a Grandma Ruth’s Farm. Discovery Playhouse is located in beautiful and historical Downtown Cape Girardeau. Check out their website for admission prices, hours of operation, and special events.  Continue to read more
