WOW!!! Is an understatement of how fabulous this place is. It is a must visit. The facility staff was super nice. They have all you need to know and learn about butterflies. The natural conservatory area was very well maintained. The birds and plant life in the area are just to die for. I had my favorite Chinese button quail. The amount of species of butterflies and moths was quite a bit. They have on average of about 1,400 to 1,500 butterflies in the garden area. They encourage you to take pictures and experience the full place. I took about 200 photos and several videos. Price was cheap but the facility is not. You have to go.
My new favorite place. Loved our walk through!!! The classical music, the flamingos and other interesting birds and the impressive array of colorful butterflies surrounding you.... loved it all! And...Its right by the southernmost point of the continental u.s. so you can stop there before or after your walk through here.
