Butterfly World, Coconut Creek, Florida
3600 West Sample Road, Coconut Creek, Florida 33073| Map |
Proclaimed to be a paradise, Butterfly World is the first park of its kind on the Western Hemisphere and the largest butterfly park in the world. This world of butterflies has created the perfect conditions for thousands of butterflies to fly, court and feed as visitors walk among them. Many butterflies are in fact bred at Butterfly World. Children can therefore learn about the entire unique life cycle of the butterfly through witnessing caterpillars and pupae in their growth stages. Specialized plants and free flying hummingbirds complete the ambience here at Butterfly World.

Off-the-beach with the ButterfliesFlag review
Butterfly World is located 20 minutes north of Fort Lauderdale in Tradewinds Park. It has all the requisite butterflies in a natural setting plus an aviary and lorikeet feeding area. Indoors there are several "rooms" to stroll through and we found it interesting to watch the butterflies eat bananas and other food. There's also a mister in the last room. With an 8 and 10 year old, we spent about 30 minutes indoors and another 45 minutes in the aviary, lorikeet area and bug area. The outside is nicely landscaped and there's a cafe with basic kid-fare. At $24.95/adult and $19.95/child it's a bit pricey and I think with younger children who will want to spend more time with the butterflies or older kids that have never experienced a butterfly world this attraction is worth the price. We saw many young families with annual passes which are a great deal.
