Unique and interesting Florida activities and destinations

Butterfly World

Opened in March 1988, Butterfly World encompasses 3 acres of butterfly aviaries and botanical gardens along with a butterfly farm and research center. The park includes two aviaries for tropical birds and an interactive lorikeet space. The World has a team of skilled care and research staff to take care of everything. Butterfly World has been key in saving the Schaus Swallowtail, a species that is becoming stronger in South Florida, and may be taken off of the endangered species list.
