One of the only free zoos in the country the St. Louis Zoo makes a lovely destination for those who want to flee the bustle of the city. I especially liked the insects and the snakes. I was a little large for the zoo tram but managed to squeeze myself into a car for the trip around the perimeter. It's a good way to get the lay of the land and make sure you see what you want to in an orderly manner. The tram does cost a little but is well worth it. The friendliness of each volunteer helping with the tram is worth noting. Mostly of retirement age, I couldn't tell if they were paid or volunteer. Each seemed to like being at the zoo in train engineer garb. We went early on a cool day and the outside animals were very active.
