300 Million Monarch Butterflies Are Headed Straight For Texas This Spring

Texans everywhere are snapping bluebonnet photos left and right, posing their children for perfectly curated shots among the blooms. Adorable as those photos may be, it turns out our state flower serves a much bigger purpose: attracting monarch butterflies. Record-breaking swarms of these beautiful insects are headed straight for Texas this spring, and it promises to be a breathtaking spectacle.

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/
