Coconut Creek is considered the “Butterfly Capital of the World”. So it’s not surprising that you will find a magical place here known as Butterfly World. When visiting you will walk through tropical, flowering gardens in six giant screened aviaries filled with twenty thousand live exotic butterflies and the world’s most amazing birds. You’ll see beautiful and large butterfly gardens with many different and unique species that you won’t find anywhere else. Great picture taking opportunities of the butterflies against the natural rain forest foliage. There is also a small bug exhibit and an orchid garden. You can hand feed the small parrots in the Lorikeet Encounter! You can also visit the Botanical Gardens, Macaw Landing, Butterfly Museum, Live Bug Zoo, outdoor café, gift shop and garden center. This is the perfect adventure for the whole family! The gift Shop and Garden Center are open to the public!

Deenie’s Hideaway this is an infamous spot in Coconut Creek known as a premier member only swingers club. The website featured an in ground jacuzzi, resort style outdoor area with in-ground pool and tiki beds, both indoor and outdoor bars, with private and group playrooms. I was once at Costco’s when I saw this woman with a large amount of oysters Rockefeller in front of me, I commented that she must be having an awesome party with so many appetizers. She smiled at me and said she runs Deenie’s Hideaway and that I should visit. I blushed at her invitation knowing full well that I would never visit. I see now that the building is about to be torn down, the owner, Marja having left this episode of her life to help women through ministry. It is fitting that across from what was Deenie’s Hideaway stands a brand-new church.
