Photo Friday: Flashback to The Biltmore

Stopping for a photo break in The Biltmore Estate

This photo was taken in the middle of a tour of The Biltmore Estate┬áin Asheville, NC. While I would recommend the Biltmore in general doing the tour of the house with a 3.5 year old was likely not our wisest decision, as he dashed in front of the (generally) older people taking their time and the ropes used to keep people out were like a flashing sign saying ‘Come under me, Come under me!’. He then dropped his pants on the front steps outside to pee, and that is when we knew we were done with the house.

The rest of the property, however, was perfect for kids. Gardens to run through and a farm to visit and general outdoor goodness, as well as an Irish pub that was great for families. Tickets are free for kids 9 and under with a paying adult, and since the tickets run in the range of $44 to $70 per person depending on the time of year and how early you purchase them it is a nice bonus to get the kids in for free.
