Have an animal encounter at the Zoo and beyond
Get up close and personal with the furry, the flying and the fishy creatures of the Saint Louis Zoo. One of the city’s many free attractions, the Saint Louis Zoo has been recognized as one of the nation’s leading zoological parks. Take a ride on the Emerson Zooline Railroad and get a guided tour of some of the most exciting animal exhibits in the park, or venture on your own through attractions like Big Cat Country, Penguin & Puffin Coast or the Interactive Stingray Pool. Want even more animal action? Go on a private expedition through Grant’s Farm for an up-close and personal feeding experience with buffalo and goats. Stop by and visit the majestic Budweiser Clydesdales and take a ride on the Grant’s Farm carousel. Or explore the family-friendly Purina Farms where you can get up close and personal with barnyard animals and everyday pets like dogs and cats. See exciting performances by rescued dogs and attend special dog-friendly events open to all dogs and their owners.
