Seize the (Relaxation) Day Make the most of National Relaxation Day this year (seriously, we’ve ALL earned it)

Take a deep breath and just enjoy life.


There’s likely never been a better time for all of us to take that advice. Research has long proven that relaxing is good for us, lowering stress levels, boosting energy and relieving tension – along with a host of other benefits that help us function better.

But for some of us, putting that into practice is easier said than done. Which is why in honor of National Relaxation Day this Aug. 15, we’re scoping out some of Cape’s most relaxing adventures to help kickstart your very own day of calm.

You can begin by pampering yourself at one of Cape Girardeau’s amazing spas. We have several to choose from, offering everything from massages and energy healing to facials and body treatments. Check out:

  • Belladonna Salon and Spa
  • eDen Spa and Salon
  • Roots Spa and Salon


Next, enjoy lunch at one of our many local wineries or breweries – it’s the perfect way to continue unwinding. From locally crafted beers to wines with a bouquet of flavors that are distinct to our region, pair your drink of choice with your favorite cuisine for a unique dining experience. Plan your perfect pairing:

There’s a lot to be said about the benefits of spending time in the great outdoors when it comes to relaxing. We’re fortunate to have several exceptional golf facilities in Cape. Take your pick from Bent Creek Golf Course, Cape Jaycee Municipal Golf Course or The TeeHouse Complex. From driving ranges to mini golf to an 18-hole course, you can let off some steam no matter what your skill level may be.

Having fun plays a big role in relaxing, which is why exploring Cape’s nightlife is a must-see on National Relaxation Day. Get in some gambling at Century Casino. Or laugh the night away at Laughing Gas Comedy. Maybe play arcade games and throw axes at Dogwood Social House. There really is something for everyone and no matter which one you choose, we guarantee you’ll have an absolute blast!

Now that we’ve shared some of our favorite ways to relax with you, we hope you’ll come spend National Relaxation day with us. With options that everyone can enjoy, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Cape Girardeau.

If you do happen to celebrate with us, we ask that you please practice social distancing and proper COVID-19 precautions.
