It had been a long time since I had been to the Butterfly House & Marine Cove.

Last weekend our family went to tour this gem in Sioux Falls. Sometimes we just don't take enough time to visit the great things our own city has to offer.

We enjoyed the strikingly beautiful aquarium, marvelously soothing butterfly house, and delightfully helpful and educational staff.

There are lots of things to do and enjoy for kids and adults alike. Above is a short video from our fun afternoon.

The Butterfly House & Marine Cove is open year around at 4320 Oxbow Ave. I can tell you this much, I won't again wait so long to visit again.
