You’ll Want To Plan A Day Trip To Maine’s Magical Butterfly House

Butterflies are some of the most beautiful insects on earth. Did you know that scientists believe there are between 15,000 and 20,000 different species of these colorful living rainbows? With so many different types, it’s not likely for us to be able to see each and every one. But, there IS a beautiful garden right here in Maine that allows visitors to see a wide variety of the ones that come flocking.

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

The Charlotte Rhoades Park and Butterfly Garden is located at 191 Main Street in Southwest Harbor, Mount Desert Island. You can call them on 207-244-9264.

Or, you can visit their website for more information including how to get your ticket to the this year’s butterfly release.
