If you’re going to be in the Buffalo, New York area and you are looking for something to do while you’re in town, the Niagara Falls area is a beautiful destination. This extraordinary locale hosts many different attractions that you’ll find appealing and if you don’t mind crossing the border to the Canadian side of the Niagara National Park, there are a few wonderful options as well. For instance, the Butterfly Conservatory will delight children of all ages, even if you’re an adult. This conservatory is located within the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens. Visitors to this attraction will get to see 45 different species of these beautiful fragile creatures of nature, with over 2000 butterflies occupying this beautiful building. They have created a tropical area which has trickling waterfalls and lush vegetation to make the butterflies feel at home. Of course, the visitors tend to love it as well.
The observatory has 180 meters of pathways that twist and turn through this glass-enclosed paradise. All paths in the observatory lead to the emergence window which is where the butterflies leave the pupae and are reborn. Once reborn, they let their wings dry before taking their first flight. Even if butterflies are not your cup of tea, this is still a beautiful place to come visit and you never know, you may learn to appreciate one of mother nature’s more beautiful creations.
Either way, this is definitely an attraction you want to include in your ventures. While you’re at the observatory, make a point to visit some of the other historical sites in the area. Then there is the waterfalls themselves, you can never go to the Niagara Falls National Park without visiting them. There are so many wonderful things to visit in the Niagara area, so if you do plan to visit the area, don’t forget the other side of Niagara Falls.
