The area is small but they have a breeding area of butterflies, so you're sure to see at least a few before walking on their trails.

I thought it was pricey for what was there. The owner was very crabby. Not welcoming at all. I reserved a plant and they said they would call when it was ready - call never came. I will not be visiting again.

I don't know when in spring the Butterfly Gardens will open for the season, but it's a lovely place to spend time with children/grandchildren/anyone!

This is a low key but fun place to visit. Not a long visit either and not real cheap but the money goes to a cause.

I brought my daughter and her family (husband and children) who were visiting from Houston Texas and we all had a very informative and enjoyable visit here. The butterflies were beautiful and everywhere, and we learned about what plants attacked them too. This is well worth a visit and about two hours will be enough to enjoy this peaceful place....
