Don’t Miss the Summer Butterfly Walk at Deering Estate June 27

ZOCEANBUTTERFLYSouth Florida’s gorgeous climate, especially during the exceptionally warm and sunny summer time, supports a beautiful and thriving environment. To experience this unique tropical splendor for yourself, pay a visit to the historic Deering Estate (16701 SW 72nd Ave) on June 27 for the popular Summer Butterfly Walk. Located between Old Cutler Road and Biscayne Bay, it is just minutes away from the Z Ocean Miami Beach Hotel.

Taking place between 10:30 am and noon, this outdoor excursion allows you to view the abundance of exotic and rarely seen species of colorful butterflies. A professional naturalist will guide you through much of the 444-acre preserve as you enjoy a unique, close-up view of butterflies like the Dina Yellow, Dingy Purplewing, Atala, and almost forty other species. Admission is $12 for adults and $7 for children.

You don’t have to be a butterfly enthusiast to appreciate these marvels of nature. Along the way you can explore the one-of-a-kind Deering Estate, which dates back to 1927 and is listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. In addition to its lush tropical landscape and verdant wildlife, the Estate features classical architecture, canoe rides, and even fossil bones from 50,000 years ago.

The Z Ocean South Beach Hotel is the perfect launchpad for this unique ecological and cultural adventure. Located between Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue, our intimate boutique hotel places you within reach of this and many other fun events. The Z Ocean South Beach has 79 lavishly appointed suites – several with private rooftop hot tubs – and provides range of services that cater to your every need and preference.
