There are lots of things to explore there, but I'm going to focus on the Butterfly House in this post. This is what I really wanted to see when we went there.
The enclosed house provides an unbelievable opportunity to observe butterflies as they circle and land on their favorite nectar flowers providing amazement and educational opportunities. It’s the perfect compliment to the 2.5 acre Bristow Butterfly Garden and the giant Butterfly Maze. Included with regular Garden admission.

My buddy has a membership so I didn't even have to pay for admission. Not why I'd mentioned wanting to go there though. It's just something I've always wanted to do. Wish I'd read about the Butterfly Maze before just now. I would have liked to explore that as well. Oh well!

There's are ribbons tied to plants so you can spot their eggs on host plants and watch as the caterpillars continually eat and grow. The opportunity to witness their final transformation as the chrysalis opens to reveal a winged beauty is what makes the Butterfly House so thrilling.
A big shout out to my buddy, Elizabeth, and her little girls for taking me and sharing a really great experience.
