    The St. Louis Zoo is a wonderful destination for both children and adults. It's easy to spend hours with the over-700 species of animals in what is consistently ranked one of the best zoos in the U.S.

    It's basically always busy, but a fantastic experience, and free! If you go in the heat of afternoon, many animals will be napping; Id recommend the morning for kids desperate to see certain animals.

    Become a member! If you go to the zoo more than once a year it is worth it. Great place for kids and the membership gets you parking and free rides all day!

    This is the last free zoo in the US, and it's amazing. Don't miss sea lion sound and the Penguins. Those are our favorite exhibits. the carousel & Children's Zoo are also free the first hour each day.

    The best zoo in the country and it is FREE which makes it so accessible. The animal exhibits are very humane and this zoo takes amazing care of all the animals. There are lots of food stands too!

    It can get crazy busy on the weekends so expect a crowd even on Sunday but given they have free admission it is totally worth a bit of a wait on certain exhibits. Though you might want to bring cash.

    A great time and nice walk across many environs. Penguins require a social ticket so grab one when you enter to secure your time.

    Big Cat Country and Fragile Forest are must sees. Especially when the Tigers are out. There's also the new Sea Lion Sound! We have the BEST Zoo in the U.S.

    This zoo has some great exhibits! It's laid out funky and one can get lost easily. I've been here twice and both times I've gotten turned around trying to find the exit.

    This is an amazing zoo, parking is a bit difficult but if you can find free parking, you can have a family fun day completely free, and nothing beats free.

    Probably one of the best zoos in the country, especially since it's free to get in! The penguin exhibit is awesome. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, too.

    study the maps it is easy to get lost. Read the arrows in the follow banner that corresponds to the area color, not those at the bottom of the sign which may point to restrooms, etc.

    Great animals! Best time to go is around 3 or 4- when the animals start to get hungry they get active :)

    They sell beer so you can deal with other people's screaming children but it's a zoo so expect children. Good exhibits. Parking is $15 but zoo admission is free.
