Butterfly Encounter in Oviedo

Follow Volusia County Moms on Twitter or Facebook.

If you are looking for an interesting place to take the kids, especially if they areButterflies 008
butterfly fans, consider the Butterfly Encounter in Oviedo. Making the drive will give them a chance to see lots of butterflies and even get to feed them.

Located at Lukas Nursery, the Butterfly Encounter, costs $5 per person, with those under three being free. Once inside, there is a garden of flowers and butterflies. There is a feeding room, where the kids can dip their finger in Gatorade and hold it out, so that butterflies will land to get a taste. But even without the sweet treat the butterflies were landing on us!

The kids loved getting to spend time with the butterflies and can't wait to go back! For more information and directions, visit their site here.
