Places to go Butterfly Watching
So, where do you go to get a more interesting experience than what you might find in your own backyard? You could take a trip to Tamaulipas, Mexico for the annual El Cielo Butterfly Festival. The trip would cost around $700 if you went through an agency. Or you could try the Victoria Butterfly Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia in Canada. Then there is London Butterfly House in Britain, the Fjarilshuset in Sweden, The Butterfly Farm in Costa Rica, or you could travel around the remainder of the United Kingdom.

If you prefer to stay in America, there is Butterfly World in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. You could go to Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House in Chesterfield, Missouri. Texas offers several enjoyable attractions. Mission, Texas has an annual Texas Butterfly Festival. East Texas has their East Texas Butterfly Festival. South Texas offers the NABA Butterfly Park. Another interesting place to watch butterflies is the Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure in Branson, Missouri. It costs around $18 for an adult and $23 for children 4 and up.

You could join other butterfly enthusiasts and get even more information as people share. Some of the clubs include: Massachusetts Butterfly Club, Grand Prairie Butterfly Club in Illinois, North Jersey Butterfly Club, Connecticut Butterfly Association, and the Carolina Butterfly Society. A club will usually have a low-cost membership fee of around $10 per year. Contributing your own information on butterfly watching can enhance the club's effectiveness. You will be able to learn from the experience of others in their adventures with butterfly watching.

If you can't leave your home to enjoy butterflies, there is still a wealth of information available to help you travel with your imagination. You can begin with checking out books at your local library. There are videos available, information on the internet, shows on learning channels on the television. Maybe you can leave your home, but you can't afford an extensive trip such as going outside the United States. In that case, you could try natural science museums, zoos, gardens, parks, meadows or nature-oriented fun parks.

Apart from your backyard butterfly garden, some points of interest where you can enjoy successful butterfly watching are Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia; Niagara Park, Ontario; Butterfly Kingdom in South Carolina and Wings of Paradise in Cambridge, Ontario. People from all over the world visit these butterfly watching hotspots. They provide butterfly watching enthusiasts a view of many species of butterflies and rare plants.
