Fodor's Review

As many as 80 butterfly species from South and Central America, the Philippines, Malaysia, Taiwan, and other Asian nations are typically found within the serene 3-acre site inside Tradewinds Park in the northwest reaches of Broward County. A screened aviary called North American Butterflies is reserved for native species. The Tropical Rain Forest Aviary is a 30-foot-high construction, with observation decks, waterfalls, ponds, and tunnels filled with thousands of colorful

butterflies. There are lots of birds, too; and kids love going in the lorikeet aviary, where the colorful birds land on every limb!

Tropical Splendor awaits at this experience of a lifetime.

With its quiet pathways, waterfalls and tropical rainforest, this is the antithesis if an amusement park, but children seem to enjoy the experience as much as adults. I purchased a season pass and spend a few days a month wandering the gardens or just sitting with a good book in a quiet corner. This is the world's largest tropical bird and butterfly aviary and the place is always spotless. My wife thinks that the gift shop, alone is worth the trip...
