    Just down the road from Jason's house in Coconut Creek is this area of wonderment and beauty. Thousands of live, colorful butterflies live on three acres of tropical gardens. The site contains waterfalls, hummingbirds, orchids, and roses. An insectarium and an outdoor cafe are also on site. This place is magical for the butterfly lover in all of us.

    Located in the center of Tradewinds Park in the western community of Coconut Creek, Butterfly World offers a serene escape from the hustle and bustle found in Ft. Lauderdale's beach corridor. The complex includes a series of enclosed and outdoor walk-through aviaries containing lush flowering gardens, tranquil Koi ponds and hundreds of butterflies. Brightly colored butterflies flutter all around as you walk through, sometimes even landing on you for a second or two. A few aviaries also contain hummingbirds and small, brilliantly colored birds called lorikeets.

    Relaxing music is piped throughout the complex, helping to set the mood. The peaceful sights and soft sounds are well integrated, soothing you to a very relaxed state of mind.

    For fun, try to photograph the elusive blue winged butterfly species. They generally close their wings when they land, causing them to look an ugly shade of brown, yet, when they are fluttering, the insides of their wings reveal the most beautiful shade of blue. Another fun activity is to feed the giant Koi. When you drop a food pellet, you'll suddenly see tens of these giant fish swarm, flopping on top of one another in an epic battle to gulp the coveted treat.
