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. 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
