Here's a hint - if you're chilly on the island, go to the Butterfly House and warm up! The butterflies and flowers are enchanting, and the staff is very knowledgeable about butterflies and the plants needed to create your own butterfly garden. Watch your step and be aware that there may be a butterfly on you at anytime. In his quest to take a photo of a butterfly, I saw one man kick a Great Owl butterfly (that's a huge brown butterfly) that was on the path, and he never knew he did it. I saw another elderly man with a butterfly on his bottom, and thankfully he didn't sit down right away. Just be careful, because these little guys are so delicate.

Definitely worth the money! We picked up a $1 off coupon on the island for the both of us so we only paid $16 total for 2 tickets. The butterflies are just gorgeous and you get a sense of peace right when you walk in. They also have a wonderful gift shop to buy some goodies.

On a rainy and cold day, you can sit inside the butterfly house and butterflies will softly flutter all around you and even land on you. A butterfly sat on my leg for about 20 minutes! We went back a few days later on a sunny day and the butterflies were crazy! They were zipping right at my face and chasing each other. The guide said the weather can really change how they act. Either way, it was a great time.
