Tucson Botanical Gardens has been described as "oasis" in the middle of Tucson. Once you enter its gates you will see why it has been called that. My husband and I visited here years ago, but I wanted to see if it was good as I remembered it. It was. The shade gardens are lush and a welcome relief from Tucson's warm days. We visited on April 30, the last day of their "Butterfly Garden" exhibit, which is open only from October through April. Butterflies are brought in from all parts of the world. The Butterfly Garden is hard to describe, because each butterfly is more colorful than the next. If you visit from May through September, it's still worth a stop.
