Travel Guide
Butterfly World featuring animals

Known by locals as the butterfly capital of the world, this small town, filled with restaurants, shopping strips and parks, is an ideal family vacation destination.

Renowned as one of America’s most desirable small towns to visit, the residential enclave of Coconut Creek is defined by its dedication to its natural environment. The city takes its name from the many plantations that helped build it.

Often referred to as the butterfly capital of the world, it has one of the world’s largest butterfly aviaries, Butterfly World, within the town’s limits, along with other butterfly parks nearby. With a tight-knit community of approximately 55,000 permanent residents, Coconut Creek is the perfect family getaway as it has remained easy to navigate. Enjoy its many green spaces, waterways and wide, tree-lined streets.

Spend the day shopping at the Promenade, Coconut Creek’s dedicated shopping precinct. Designer outlets, local fashion labels and stores selling handmade items line this wide pedestrian street. Take a seat at a café and you’ll be treated to local hospitality, along with fresh coffee and light snacks.

Stroll along Coconut Creek’s picturesque streets to discover the plentiful parks and open spaces that the city is known for. Many of these are filled with butterflies, as the warm climate is perfect for the insects’ breeding conditions. See one of the world’s largest collections of butterflies at Butterfly World. Here you’ll find more than 5,000 butterflies from around 80 species.

Stop by the casino in Coconut Grove to try your hand at cards or visit Tradewinds Park to spend the day riding horses and enjoying farm tours, the perfect family day out. Get around the area easily on its efficient public bus system. If you’re driving, you’ll have no trouble finding free street parking or securing covered parking in most areas of the town.
