The magical beauty of a butterfly is something for which we all pause to get a closer look, no matter our age, and during your upcoming visit to Scottsdale, you and your family will have the opportunity to witness an entire kaleidoscope of the whimsical creatures! Butterfly Wonderland, located at 9500 East Vía de Ventura F100, is a butterfly habitat guests can walk through and explore, adding a magical ambience to your Arizona getaway. Spend an enchanting afternoon lost in the color and ethereal beauty of these charming creatures, and don’t be surprised if your dreams that night are filled with butterflies flitting about as you sleep deeply in the beds in our I Love Scottsdale sanctuaries!
If you have never visited a butterfly conservatory before, prepare to be amazed as you enter the rainforest conservatory in which thousands of butterflies from all over the world make their home. Coming from over 70 countries and just waiting to take a ride on your shoulder as you explore their home, these unique creatures have a thousand stories to tell, and as they dance and fly about the conservatory, the peace and joy they bring are destined to change the vibe of your vacation. Home to the largest Butterfly Emergence Gallery in the nation, children and adults alike are charmed by the transformations from caterpillar to chrysalis to beautiful butterfly that happens on a regular basis in Butterfly Wonderland. Also offering a koi pond filled with colorful fish and a stunning selection of flowers and plants, off which the butterflies feed, if you did nothing else during your Scottsdale travels, we think you would be quite content!
Bringing the Magic to Life
A 3D Theater brings the magic of butterflies to life as it teaches viewers all about the lifespan of the butterfly; a short film titled Flight of the Bumblebees is always showing and is both informative and breathtakingly beautiful at the same time. And because it is important to understand how butterflies and honey bees are vital to our own survival, the Honey Bee Extravaganza provides an intriguing glance into the sweet and busy life of these stinging creatures as well. Also offering a reptile exhibit, a selection of arthropods guaranteed to fascinate, and an edible insects station filled with tasty treats, your visit to Butterfly Wonderland Scottsdale will be filled with fun from your first steps inside the conservatory to your final moments spent picking up memorabilia from the gift shop at the end of your visit!
