Visiting The Zoo in Forest Park and Education Center is a lot like stepping into a nature documentary. Guests can take a self-guided journey to meet more than 200 creatures from across the world. They may stop by the habitats of the black and white ruffed lemur, the western bobcat, and the spotted leopard. Along the way, guests might learn a lot: for instance, that the Bennett's wallaby carries its young in a pouch, and that the critically-endangered cotton-top tamarin has lost more than 75% of its native habitat.

But in at least one way, the zoo accomplishes something that David Attenborough never could. Visitors can actually reach out and touch a creature during discovery programs. They can even adopt certain animals, perhaps helping provide tasty grasses and career guidance to a red kangaroo.

These programs exemplify the nonprofit zoo's dedication to wildlife education and awareness, something they hope to instill in their visitors from an early age. In the summer, educators spin "Animal Tales" for rapt young audiences and hold a Zoo Camp, where kids start to learn about diet and animal care. As kids' love of animals grows, the zoo invites them to volunteer as Crew in Training members. Once they hit college, students can become interns working on projects such as field studies of the patas monkey.

Inside a beautiful Victorian home, trained massage therapist Sheila Maleckas has created a soothing and tranquil space for her clients to unwind both mentally and physically as she performs a bevy of massage therapies. Massage sessions take place in a quiet, private, dimly lit room where Sheila will perform one of three styles of bodywork, including Swedish, deep tissue, and pregnancy massage. The Swedish massage uses an array of strokes to relieve general aches and pains, transforming tension-riddled body cots into soothed and snuggly sleeping bags. Deep tissue massage is recommended to alleviate chronic stress due to misalignment, past injuries, and daily bear attacks. Sheila is also a certified practitioner of pregnancy massage, which utilizes a variety of techniques to relieve joint pain due to postural imbalance and the weight of carrying an internal tiny person.

Nestled within the charming environs of a stately Victorian neighborhood across the street from Forest Park, Lathrop House B&B offers respite from the taxing hustle and bustle of daily life. Approaching the columned front porch bedecked with white wicker furniture for old-timey relaxin’, visitors are greeted by Toesey the housecat and swept away to a bygone era of tea-sipping in rose gardens and coolly waving at the village inventor as he zips past on his steam-powered segway.

Felix's Family Ristorante owner Dolores Terriaca crafts meals lovingly from Abruzzan recipes inspired by her central Italian roots, In addition to the regular menu, there's also nightly specials, such as clams provencale over homemade pasta, and prime rib with seasoned potatoes.
