This is a beautiful outdoor garden. We enjoyed our tour here but it was a bit of off season. The butterfly exhibit is excellent. I also liked their gift shop.

Took our 6 year old Granddaughter to see all the pretty flowers and to see the Butterfly House. She loved it and we loved it so much, that we bought a Family Season pass.
