Publication Names Cape Girardeau the Prettiest Town in Missouri

Jul 19, 2018

After recently being called the most boring city in Missouri by the website Business Insider, Cape Girardeau has found its way on to a more favorable list.

Architectural Digest has named the River City the prettiest town in the Show Me State.

In compiling a list for every state, the publication writes although Cape Girardeau may be more widely known from the movie  Gone Girl, it's also a sweet little town on the banks of the Mississippi River with a uniquely designed suspension bridge, antique clocks in its downtown area, and beautiful hiking spots.

By the way, Architectural Digest calls Galena the prettiest town in Illinois because of its well-preserved 19th century mansions, "you-pick" farms, and activities that celebrate the outdoors, such as horseback riding.

Here is WSIU's story about Cape Girardeau being named the most boring city in Missouri.
