All About Cape: 2019 Preview!

Dec 31, 2018

If Forbes is right, more than forty percent of you made resolutions this year. While we can’t make you lose weight or earn more money (that’s your fairy godmother’s job), we can help you experience new things and become more active.

There’s an endless list of cool stuff to check out at Whether it’s a concert at the Show Me Center or River Campus, special exhibit at a museum or local festival, we’ll have the scoop. Keep your eyes peeled throughout the year for ways to experience something exciting.

Another great way to try something new is by visiting a local restaurant you’ve never been to before. A trip through Cape takes your palate around the world – Japan, Vietnam, Italy, South America. Challenge yourself to not order the same thing twice, and you’ll be a multicultural gourmet by year’s end.

If you’ve resolved to find a new hobby, consider expanding your culinary skills with new techniques. The Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center is hosting a free outdoor seminar at 10 a.m. on January 5 to demonstrate several ways to cook catfish using equipment available at a campsite. Whether you’re more culinary or outdoorsy, it’s an impressive skill to master.

But the most common New Year’s resolution is to become healthier. Joining a gym is a good strategy, but walking or jogging outdoors is proven to be a mood booster in addition to a calorie burner. And Cape has some of the prettiest trails in the state – whether you’re wanting a slow jog along a paved path or a grueling hike through the woods. Discover local trails at, and make sure you’re prepared for Southeast Missouri’s winter weather before setting out.
