Okay, I know you’re going to think that the Obamas inspired this one, but I’ve had my eye on the Biltmore Estate for years. I love historical houses and this is the grand daddy of them all. The stunning 250 room French chateau is one of the largest family-owned estates in the U.S. It sits on 8,000 acres and has world famous gardens. It also has shops, restaurants, hotels and much, much more. They even stage concerts in the Summertime. So if you, like me, are in or around Asheville be sure to add it to your itinerary. You’ll feel like American royalty wandering their grounds.
