I have visited family in Decatur, Illinois for years and I did not know that the Scovill Zoo existed until this year. I went, and enjoyed the zoo but especially enjoyed the beautiful gardens.

Had a great time with the family whole vacationing in Illinois last week. I loved the penguins (have never been so close to one before!), the roaming muscovey duck, and the goats! I think we'll be back next year on our next visit.

While this may not be the size of the St. Louis Zoo, it does provide many high quality exhibits, train rides, carousel, and many interactive activities. Also the food is much more affordable than expected. It's great for the whole family!
