One of the best things about St. Louis is that many of the city's most popular attractions, including the St. Louis Zoo, Art Museum, History Museum and Science Center are all free. But State Senator Joan Bray of University City wants to give the Zoo and other institutions the option to charge admission to those who don't live in St. Louis City or County. According to an article in the Post-Dispatch, the Zoo and Art Museum aren't sold on her idea, but the proposal is working its way through the legislative process in Jefferson City.
Personally, I just can't imagine having to pay to take my in-laws or other out-of-town friends to the Zoo. What do you think? Share your comments below.
