The Biltmore Gardens are an excellent way to spend a summer afternoon, with plenty of variety and color to delight the senses.
This is an adventure that I would urge anyone to take. It feels exceptionally adventurous while still being very safe. The guide is knowledgable and prepared, as well as there being several other boats and several other guides who are also on the same team to help tackle any unexpected undertakings. Even as an overly cautious introvert, I felt prepared and confident in everything that we did because our guide talked it through what to expect and what to do if things went unexpectedly.
Every time I exit the state northbound, I inevitably drive by the Tellus Museum, and see the billboards proudly boasting about dinosaurs, and I think to myself, “why haven’t we visited the Tellus yet?!”. Finally on a quiet summer afternoon, my husband and I set out for an “adventure date” and checked the Tellus off the Adventure map.
Since our trip to Lake Lure was calling for rain the whole weekend, we had to fall back on an indoor activity – and what more glorious than the largest residential home in America, the 175000 square foot Biltmore Estate. With 250 rooms to explore, I knew it would keep us occupied no matter what the weather!
