Sidetrack: Weekend Visit to Biltmore House in Asheville North Carolina

No matter how many times I visit the Biltmore Estate, I am never disappointed. This weekend was no different. My wife and I purchased year-long passes because we do make this visit on a regular basis, and no matter how many times I visit, I always see something new. During this visit, the Biltmore Estate had opened four additional rooms to the house tour, they have added a tour of Riverbend Farms, and of course the Winery tour and tasting is still offered. During this visit, there was also snow on the ground, which added a different flavor to the scenery. I also used the audio tour equipment as well. It was quite interesting because this aspect of the tour allows a visitor to get even more details about the house and the Estate.

Purchasing season passes is really a great deal for those of us who regularly spend time at the Biltmore Estate. This spring, the Estate is also opening a new village area, offering more places to visit, shop and eat. I will visit throughout the spring to take in the scenery.
