This zoo is great. There is free admission for everyone, and it is one of the best-maintained and cleanest zoos I've ever seen. They have a great penguin exhibit, and you actually go through an open-air exhibit with freezing temperatures, which just adds to the experience, as you watch the penguins in their natural habitat. They offer a variety of shows throughout the day. They also have a train you can ride throughout the park, and although the views aren't great, the ride is fun but does cost a small amount. They also have a children's petting zoo, which is always fun for the kiddos.
This is a must-see of St. Louis! A side note: the zoo offers parking for $8. You can park over in another parking lot for free and walk down the street to save some cash.
