The zoo will not disappoint. It's nicely laid out, clean, and the sea lions are hilarious. You do have to pay for parking and on nice days it can get a bit scare. You can always park out in the Forrest Park area and walk or over by the Planetarium (its a bit of a walk, but during the summer there's a trolly that shuttles people around the park).

Best free zoo ever. Parking is rough, it pays to plan ahead and have a backup plan.
