We visited in November and it was a bit chilly outside. They hid in the trees mostly but it was a fun scavenger hunt to find them. Since they were not flying around, we got great photos of them. They do a new butterfly release at 3pm. I highly recommend this!

Pretty cool place! The butterfly garden was amazing! They had over 1000 butterflies and was not too crowded. They have kid friendly interactive activities. They also had a lot of exhibits and offered a lot of information on Florida's history. Fun time with the family!
