The Butterfly Forest In Iowa That’s The Perfect Family Destination

Many of us remember the project we did as children, where we raised caterpillars until they built their cocoon, and then released them when they hatched into gorgeous butterflies. While butterflies don’t really make great pets, they are absolutely magical to watch! When you watch them flutter around a garden, moving from flower to flower, it’s impossible not to smile. Did you know that you can find a three acre butterfly garden right here in the Hawkeye State?

Bellevue State Park is located at 24668 US-52, Bellevue, IA 52031. While you’re in town, be sure to stop by the nearby Flatted Fifth BBQ Restaurant, where you’ll find mouth-watering brisket, ribs, and even cajun dishes. Most nights, they even have live entertainment. Make a plan to visit Bellevue this spring and you’ll have the time of your life.
