The Biltmore Travel Journal 2

Hey, it’s Laura. This is the second part in my travel journal from my visit to The Biltmore Estate in Asheville. Basically, the Biltmore is a stunning mansion that offers tours describing its long history. The architecture and surroundings alone are amazing to look at.

We took a walk through some of the gardens that surround the house. When I say “some of the gardens” I mean some because there are about 8,000 acres on the property. It would probably take me a whole other day to venture out and see the different areas, and that still wouldn’t cover all of it!

It was strange, yet interesting to see this massive ornate structure that encompasses 1800s luxury surrounded by passing modern cars and visiting families from every corner of the world. Seeing the old and the new just so casually together seemed captivating because of the huge contrast in history.

I had the chance to go on the Rooftop Tour which takes us to higher balconies and viewpoints on the mansion not open to the regular tour. It was definitely my favorite part of my entire visit, and I think you’ll see why when you look at the photos!
