Saint Louis Zoo
Faith W., M1
I consider myself to be a bit of a zoo connoisseur — I’ve been to zoos on three continents — and I have to say that the Saint Louis Zoo, a 10-minute drive or 45-minute walk through scenic Forest Park, is one of the best I’ve ever seen, with beautifully maintained exhibits and an extensive collection of animals. Highlights include the gorgeous new polar bear exhibit, the sea lion tunnel, the penguins, the primate house, and Ginger the baby orangutan! Best of all, entrance is COMPLETELY FREE!
