Have you and the kids run out of things to do in L.A.?  Migrate to San Diego this spring when the San Diego Zoo Safari Park (15500 San Pasqual Valley Rd., Escondido; www.sdzsafaripark.org) opens its Butterfly Jungle. More than 30 different species of butterflies from around the globe will populate the zoo’s Hidden Jungle Aviary.

Besides checking out these beautiful creatures, kids can enjoy activities and learn about butterflies through special presentations. As if the splendor of all these winged insects weren’t enough, the aviary also is home to more than a dozen exotic bird species.

Expert tip: To get a butterfly to land on you, dress in bright-colored clothes and move slowly.

The Butterfly Jungle will be open from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. March 14-April 12, and the zoo also will be offering reserved timed tickets during the Jungle’s peak hours of 10 a.m.-2:45 p.m. Admission is $48 adults, $38 ages 3-12.
