Another awesome thing about Coconut Creek is that, despite its tiny size, it features several tourist attractions to explore.
For one, Butterfly World, the main highlight of the "Butterfly Capital of the World," is one of the spots you shouldn't miss visiting while you're here.
It's the first butterfly house worldwide, and since its opening in 1988, it remains the most expansive one of its kind!
At Butterfly World, you can see thousands of these fantastic insects throughout their entire lifecycle, from egg to caterpillar to adult butterfly.
Visitors can stroll through the Grace Gardens outdoor botanical garden, view mounted specimens at the park's insectarium, or observe butterflies at different stages of development at the park's laboratory facility.
Aside from viewing butterflies up close, you can also check out the country's largest free-flight hummingbird aviary, a lorikeet encounter experience, and a tropical rainforest aviary at the sanctuary.
Another must-visit spot to explore around the city is the 44-acre Hillsboro Pineland Natural Area.
Here, visitors are surrounded by some of South Florida's most treasured plant life within these borders in the pine Flatwoods and isolated wetlands.
Saw palmetto, slash pine, swamp fern, Sabal Palm, and Cypress are a few remarkable examples of vegetation found at Hillsboro Pineland Natural Area.
There are also some trails within the perimeter that you can go through.

As soon as the sun rises, go on a unique golf date with the gang at Tradewinds Park and Stables!
While more famous for homing Butterfly World, the expansive park is where Tradewinds Park Disc Golf Course lies, an outdoor escape filled with dozens of (relatively inexpensive) family activities, including disc golf!
If you've never tried disc golf, it's like playing traditional golf using a Frisbee-style disk into a basket in as few throws as possible.
