“Great place for a family”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

They have a butterfly garden in the summer and fall - a really nice cafe to get a meal - classes for those so inclined - and a great Christmas bash for the kids! We love this place (even took cooking classes with my daughter in their back "Martha Stewart" like kitchen.

“Great glass house.”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

This place is a very beautiful place to go go year round but it is especially nice in winter. There are tropical sections and it is a great place to get a 'light" fix without goiing south for the winter. There are many special events including a butterfly exhibit. It is great for kids and I even went to a wedding there once.
