Kansas City Zoo is my favorite zoo. Located in Swope Park, it is easily navigable and affordable. All admission prices are under $8. In addition to numerous impressive animal displays, there are animal and train rides, shows and an IMAX theatre. The gift shop is worth a stop too- lot's of cool stuff! The main themes of the zoo are Australia, Africa and Farmland USA (replete with excellent petting zoo.) In the past few years the zoo has been undergoing extensive renovation and improvements. The sea lion shows are really fun (my daughters favorite.) The whole family was very impressed with the zoo and highly recommend it!

Directions: Located in the sprawling Swope Park along with the Starlight Theater, numerous fountains and picnic facilities.
