Butterflies soar at new Dahlonega attraction: 

There's just something magical about butterflies. Maybe it's the way they seem to float through the air, or maybe it's the endless array of eye-popping colors and designs on their wings – but people never seem to lose their fascination for nature's best-loved flying insects. And now, thanks to a unique new attraction in North Georgia, people can spend more quality time with butterflies than ever before.

The Good Day feature team took a road trip to Dahlonega this morning to check out the brand-new Dahlonega Butterfly Farm, which celebrated its Grand Opening at the beginning of the month. Located at 427 Castleberry Bridge Road in Dahlonega, the farm is a passion project of owner JoAnn Goldenburg, who wanted to create a natural habitat for butterflies and their native plants, and a place where people could learn more about these incredible insects. The heart of the farm is a 720-square foot conservatory, filled with hundreds of butterflies including Eastern Tiger Swallowtails, Spicebush Swallowtails, Malachites, and Pipevine Swallowtails. 

Current hours at the Dahlonega Butterfly Farm are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays through Sundays.  General admission costs $8 for adults (ages 13 and older) and $5 for children. Group tours may also be booked online.
