The Biltmore Estate is a monument to over the top opulence. Interesting from a historical perspective, grand in its scope, beautiful in environment, and the product of a son who was given a lot of money and wanted to outdo his siblings and everyone else with that money. The extensive grounds are open for wandering by foot or car, and different areas of the main home are accessible via different types of specialized tours. Wandering the walking paths around the home reveal ornate formal gardens, open pastures, forest, and a man made pond. The grounds extend much further still, going to a more recently developed winery, inn, restaurants, and more.
