It’s time to stop refreshing your news feed; that way madness lies. Get out and do something that doesn’t involve placards, posting, tweeting, shouting, or the gnashing of teeth. Here are five suggestions:

1. Monarchs rule at the annual Krohn Conservatory Butterfly Show, March 25–April 18. Observe and learn about these delicate but determined creatures, known for their 2,500 mile migration to Mexico every year. butterflyshow.com

2. Visionaries + Voices: Uncanny, is a portrait exhibit showing work that goes beneath the surface to reveal the essence of a subject. Opening reception Thursday, March 30, 5-8 p.m.; runs through May 25, 2017. visionariesandvoices.com

3. Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light explores the extraordinary leaded glass from the legendary Tiffany Studios, including five windows, 20 lamps, and 100 glass “jewels.” The show also includes three examples of Tiffany lamp forgeries that illuminate issues of authenticity. April 1–August 13, 2017 at the Cincinnati Art Museum. cincinnatiartmuseum.org

4. No matter how moody Mother Nature may act, when it’s time for Zoo Blooms, it’s spring. 100,000 tulips and more than 1 million hyacinths, daffodils, and flowering shrubs can’t be wrong, right? April 1– 30. cincinnatizoo.org

5. Betts House: A Day in the Life explores the daily bustle of the Betts family (four generations and more than two dozen children were raised there) inside the walls of Cincinnati’s oldest surviving brick building, which was built in 1804. Saturday, April 1, 12–5 p.m. thebettshouse.org
