Settled in the Fort Myers River district is a family outing that is both interactive and magical. Surround yourself in a house of glass and light while hundreds of butterflies flutter amongst native Florida orchids, palms and a stream of water. Guides are on hand to point out various species of butterfly, while kids can get real-life experience with the life-cycle of this adored insect. Clean, relaxing, and located right outside Fort Myers historic downtown district, the Butterfly Estates gives you a chance to reconnect with nature in a relaxing, peaceful setting. Guests also enjoy epicurean delights in the Flutterby Café located in the adjacent cottage. Known for its delicious calzones, teas, and old Florida charm, the Butterfly Estates makes a great stop for lunch.
The Butterfly Estates is located at 1815 Fowler Street in Ft. Myers. The outdoor garden space is free of charge, but entry into the conservatory is $15 for adults and $9 for children. The Butterfly Estates is open daily except Sunday and Monday from 9am to 3pm.
