The Butterfly Forest In Florida That’s The Perfect Family Destination
While it still might seem that winter has yet to release us from its grasp, there is no reason why we can’t start planning our springtime adventures now. In Florida, there are pockets of nature everywhere, which is what makes this state such a beauty. But sometimes, when you’re looking for a little bit of nature that isn’t often found just right outside your door, you need to look a little bit harder, especially when it comes to butterflies.
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/
