Staff Pick: Best Place to Play with Butterflies

Tucson Botanical Garden Butterfly Encounter

Staff Pick

Let's start by saying this place is not just for the kids, adults can have a grand old time frolicking with butterflies at the Tucson Botanical Garden any day of the week. Inside a small glass enclosure, a misty jungle surrounds you and numerous species of butterflies fly around aimlessly. The delicate little insects flutter around their habitat and some even land on your clothes to take a break from their butterfly lives; it's quite enchanting. It's definitely an experience that the kids will love, but adults too might find this insect wonderland more charming than not.
