You’ll Want To Plan A Day Trip To Arizona’s Magical Butterfly House
They’re pretty, fragile, and have a surprising propensity for commuting long distances. In southern Arizona, butterflies are a constant presence, fluttering from flower to flower even in the middle of the desert’s winter season. And, you have to admit, nothing feels quite as magical as a group of butterflies flying past you on a sunny day.
If you want to experience that magical feeling a little more often, then we have just the place for you to visit!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
