The Biltmore estate lies in the Smoky Mountains areas and is one of the largest and oldest estates in the US. The Biltmore estate is actually partly responsible for the creation of the Pisgah National Park in the area because of the sale of a large tract of land to the federal government. The estate now acts as a tourist attraction because of the historical value that it has as well as the range of activities that it offers.
There are many works of art inside the manor, and a tour is offered for the general public. The estate also has activities such as horseback riding and hiking because of the large area of land that it still has. If you plan to visit the estate, you should book tickets in advance because that can ensure you a place in the tour and will net you a discount to boot.
