The Saint Louis Zoo is one of the best in the world, a fact that is proven once you step foot inside its gates and begin exploring. Trip Advisor travelers agree, naming the zoo as number eight on the list of ‘Top 25 Zoos in the World’ in 2015.
Home to 18,000 animals from 700 species on 90 acres, the Saint Louis Zoo is a can’t-miss stop for all those traveling to the city, no matter what age you are. Roar with the lions, waddle with the penguins, or visit with the polar bear, Kali, in his brand new exhibit. Best of all? Admission is free!
The Zoo isn’t the only fantastic, and free, attraction in St. Louis. In fact, Forest Park (where the Zoo is located) is home to many others – including the St. Louis Science Center, the St. Louis Art Museum and the St. Louis History Museum. Not to mention the 1,200 acres open to explore (that’s bigger than Central Park in New York City!).
