  • Butterfly Festival 2022 not to be missed. Only there for a short time. All kinds of butterflies you can get up close to but not touch.

  • WE visited Powell Gardens recently with our daughters family. Very nice trails to follow. It was a very, very hot day we chose. I tried to find the shade as often as I could.

  • Beautiful and fun adventure. You'll need more than 3 hours if you want to enjoy and go through each site. I also have to shout out to Gary, thanks for showing up right on time!! The shuttle back to the my car was much appreciated and we enjoyed a bit of sight seeing and story telling!!
  • Beautiful... very peaceful... very big! Kids loved the "Fortopia" area. The employees are friendly, knowledgeable, helpful.. and patient & kind - I had to leave my backpack purse outside of the Butterfly House for the sake of the butterflies, and they made sure nobody bothered it or ran off with it. The bathrooms were cool, clean, and we'll maintained. It was a very hot day and there were water stations and water-fans scattered around to help cool us off. We had a great time. Tiring, but nice. :)
