A zoo is the first place most people would go to see a leopard, whereas the second place would be the chainlink enclosure in Donald Sutherland's backyard. Steer clear of Donald Sutherland with this Groupon.
$16 for Admission for Up to Four (Up to $32 Value)
Kids' admission is regularly $4 each. The zoo is home to butterflies from New Guinea, Costa Rica, and Borneo, as well as to North American species that soar across the enclosed expanse. The tropical bugs flit from flower to flower on sunny days while remaining fairly stationary (and thus more photogenic) on cloudy days. The facility is closed on rainy days, as butterflies are barred from flying as part of their union contract.
Newport Butterfly Farm
Named as a Best of Rhode Island 2011 attraction by Yankee magazine, Newport Butterfly Farm cultivates a tapestry of colorful flying creatures. Celebrating its 23rd summer, the farm's enclosure houses hundreds of different butterfly species from across the globe, including white monarchs, common buckeyes, and chinese yellow swallowtails. A variety of mounted butterflies is also available for purchase to decorate a home office or serve as a warning to moths fluttering around your home office. Open until Labor Day, the farm's outdoor enclosure is also sometimes visited by larger flying critters, including wild turkeys and hawks.
