Checking out the Biltmore was a really neat experience. We didn't see EVERYTHING and it still took up our whole day. Man we felt like we got quite a workout that day. :)

Before this trip I didn't know what the Biltmore Estate was, but I'm glad I got a chance to check it out. It was the home of one of America's wealthiest families, the Vanderbilts. It sits on 8,000 acres of land, and besides having a house the size of a castle, it also has beautiful gardens, a petting zoo, a winery, and a separate Inn for people to stay in. We weren't allowed to take any pictures inside the house, which was a shame. Each room had a different "theme". They also had a bowling ally and indoor swimming pool in the basement. Here are some of the pictures I was able take that day.
