The Butterfly Garden In Maine That’s The Perfect Family Destination
There are a lot of living creatures to appreciate here in Maine, but there’s one that really only gets the spotlight for a short part of the year. In the spring and summertime, butterflies make their way to Maine gardens — and it’s a beautiful sight to see. While there are estimated to be between 15,000 and 20,000 different species of butterflies, most people only get to see a fraction of that amount. While that’s certainly unfortunate, we’re just happy for the ones we can see. And one of the best places to enjoy the butterflies is this park in Downeast Maine!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
