“Wonderful Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I really enjoy this zoo, and I lived in San Diego which has one of the finest zoos in the country. Love going to the STL Zoo with my daughter. Stingray visit is so cool. You can pet and feed the stingrays! A must visit with kids if you go to STL.

“Great zoo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a fantastic zoo with an amazing variety of animals to see. I highly recommend getting the safari pass as it is worth the value and saves money on the activities it allows you to experience. The zoo is large and spread out and does require a lot of walking but it is well laid out and animals are all along the way. We love this zoo!

“Great Family Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

My family and I spent a wonderful afternoon at the St. Louis Zoo. The Sea Lion exhibit was especially impressive...don't miss going "under water"! There seemed to be a lot of construction going on within the zoo right now, likely gearing up for the summer season. We ate lunch in the cafeteria, and the food was fairly reasonably priced and actually good...something you don't find too often at a zoo!
