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!

Charlotte Rhoades Park & Butterfly Garden is open seasonally from mid-May to mid-October, sunrise to sunset. You can learn more about the history of the butterfly garden in Maine, and hours and upcoming events, by checking out their website or following them on Facebook.

Not far from this beauty is another spectacular nature spot to enjoy. When you’re in the area wander through the magical, otherworldly Asticou Azalea Garden in Maine.
