Roadtrip – The Biltmore Estate

While driving through the Carolinas, how can you resist visiting the Biltmore Estate. It’s just about the closest thing we have to a castle in the United States. We took advantage of their offer for kids to visit free during the summer. We bought our tickets online and just had to pick them up in the morning. We didn’t choose to use the audio-recorded tour and just went through on our own, reading the signage. It wasn’t too crowded, but there were many people there, even on a Thursday morning. We toured the house and it’s surrounding garden, but didn’t take the time to see the village. It was pretty cool. I love seeing old houses, and this is so lavish and awesome, it was great.







The gardens were beautiful, I loved seeing all the different flowers in the greenhouse. And I was a little jealous of the in-house organ, the music room, and the huge library.
