Top Reasons to Visit the St. Louis Zoo
I can’t lie, the boychild and I love going to the zoo! Last year while we were in St. Louis visiting Danyelle, we took the kiddos to the St. Louis Zoo! St. Louis Zoo is a pretty large zoo spread over 90 acres of land with over 18000 animals from 700 species. There’s so much to see that it was hard for us to cover the entire zoo in one day.
The kids had a ball! We did everything from checking out the penguins and flamingos to the monkeys. After all, you can’t go to the zoo without checking out the monkeys. Between visiting the animals the kids got a chance to ride on the carousel! What kid doesn’t love a carousel. What I loved most about the zoo was the fact that all the animals were out and about. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to the zoo only to find no animals… sigh!
While at the St. Louis Zoo we also got a chance to touch the stingrays. If your child is adventurous they will love getting an up, close and personal look at the stingrays with the zookeeper. While you are there don’t forget to check out the of children’s zoo. It’s fun for kids of all ages.
Lastly, make sure you check out the Zooline Railroad, this is the quickest and easiest way to see the entire zoo if you aren’t up for all of that walking. If those aren’t enough reasons to visit the St. Louis Zoo, just remember zoo admission is free! I don’t know if that excites you but it definitely excites me as it costs almost $20 to go to the zoos here in Chicago, there is a fee for special attractions. If you want to check out the special attractions, I suggest getting the Safari Pass, it’s only $12 and gives you access to all the attractions.
So the next time you are in St. Louis, make sure the St. Louis Zoo is on your list.
