Wendy Park In Cleveland Becomes A Butterfly Forest Each Fall

Northeast Ohio is a super sweet destination, especially in the autumn. Our many farms, corn mazes, and family-oriented attractions draw in visitors from all over the state. However, annual instinct attracts one other visitor each autumn… the monarch butterfly! Believe it or not, this gorgeous critter stops by Cleveland around the first day of autumn, and they swarm the Cleveland Metroparks in search of nourishment. Today, we’re going to take a look at monarchs in Wendy Park. You’ll surely find yourself enchanted by their presence!

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/
