One of my grandkids and I were looking for something to do one afternoon and we decided to visit the Henson Robinson Zoo. It was far from visiting the St. Louis Zoo but it was close, clean, and the animals are well cared for. There is also a nice playground near that finished off the pleasant afternoon. There is something to be said for a short, one-on-one encounter with small children sometimes instead of making it a long, drawn-out day. We are from Jacksonville so anything we do in St. Louis is 2 hours there and 2 hours home. This is close and just right for a morning or afternoon away. The zoo keepers were friendly and informative also.
