ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The Saint Louis Zoo has officially been chosen as the No. 1 free attraction in the nation in USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards.
Results were announced Friday after four weeks of voting.
The Saint Louis Zoo was the only zoo selected for consideration when USA Today asked visitors to help pick the 10 best free attractions from a list of 20.
It was chosen over Central Park in New York City, Balboa Park (home to San Diego Zoo) in San Diego, and Millennium Park in Chicago, according to a news release from the zoo.
Votes for the zoo were greater than those for the Alamo, the Golden Gate Bridge and Boston’s Freedom Trail.
