Butterfly Garden at Rainbow Springs
Years ago the Rainbow Springs State Park, which we've featured on this blog numerous times, was a sort of mini-Disney World. There were rides, a small zoo, a rodeo, as well as swimming and kayaking. Some say it was Disney World that put an end to the old Rainbow Springs. Today, it's a great place to walk through jungle-like canopies where you will see a couple of nice waterfalls, the remnants of the old zoo and the Butterfly Garden which used to be part of the old rodeo arena. And you can also swim with the gators or kayak or canoe around them on the beautiful Rainbow River.
