It's a little drive through scenic countryside to get to Wings of Wonder. Butterflies fly around free inside the large walk-through greenhouse building. It's a fun place to take children or out-of-town guests. If you want to take the nearby Buena Vista ferry and make...More

This would have been a wonderful activity, if I could have made it passed the she-male guarding the entrance. The customer service was horrible. The person working insulted me in front of my family and made the entire 2.5 hour trip and memory a very...More

Wings of Wonder was amazing. It's a butterfly conservatory, and Oregon is so lucky to have it. Everyone should go to "experience" this place. We went to a similar one is Key West, Florida which was rated very highly by Tripadvisor. I thought Oregon's is...More
