One the main attractions of the city is definitely the St. Louis Zoo, which is well-known for its preservation of endangered species. The staff is really friendly, helping along the way anyone who needs it. The animals are great to look at, they all look healthy and happy. Kids are the ones that are most fascinated by the animals,of course but whenever you see some wild ones that you just see on tv, it is a wonderful experience for adults too.

Oh and the best part, the zoo is free, though there are some attractions like the railroad and the sea lion show that are charged.
