If you like butterflies, the Butterfly Rainforest, in Gainesville, Florida, is the place to go. This 6400 square foot enclosure is part of the Florida Museum of Natural History. It houses gorgeous tropical plants, birds, and over 1,000 butterflies. There's also a butterfly hatchery, for those who are interested in seeing the life cycle of a butterfly. Visitors walking through the rainforest will see waterfalls, ponds containing koi and turtles, and plenty of feeding stations for the birds and butterflies.
Admission is $10.50 for adults and $6.00 for children. The rainforest is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and Sunday from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
