  • A great place to take a walk with nature. The boardwalk offers some spectacular views of native vegetation and environment. The viewing tower at the east end of the boardwalk allows you to see the trees and water from above. The Nature Center is a visually engaging education resource that gives stunning graphic illustration of the inhabitants of our South Florida environment and ecosystem. Great place to take the family - all ages.
  • To put it simply, it's a great, somewhat out of the way nature center and boardwalk trail to visit whenever it's open. Fair weather is recommended for visiting if you aren't the type to handle Florida heat. Also, be sure to hold onto your plastic bottles and other disposable things, as this is a natural area. Do not even think about carelessly dropping trash here, as it ruins the sightseeing experience, and is also illegal. Warm regards otherwise, though.
  • This is such amazing place. We got to meet the cutest little alligator named Dash and the rest of the animals there. The nature center was a great experience but the boardwalk outside is a little underwhelming. In all, a great afternoon trip.
  • Got to watch them feed their juvenile alligator, Dash. Nice peaceful boardwalk to enjoy. Great exhibits, and staff there are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely go again!!
  • For children 8 and under this is a great place that is FREE and they can learn about Butterflies (that is where the name comes from) and about other animals including an Owl, Alligators, Skunk and more. There is a crafts and books are for the kids to keep busy and they book birthday parties. There are also outdoor paths for enjoying nature. FREE!

Where to stay in Boca Raton

Resorts and oceanside hotels with peach and pink stucco architecture populate Boca Raton's coastline. Farther inland from the beaches, there's a wide selection of affordable lodging in chain hotels and rental properties. For a longer stay, consider renting a furnished apartment from a private owner near the city's downtown. Those looking for a stress-free vacation could try an all-inclusive vacation package at one of the seaside resorts.
