Hello, friends! Welcome back to Stylishly Good Vibes! I’m back on the blog to share all about an Asheville staple—the Biltmore Estate!
If you’ve been following along with the blog, you may recall the last time I went to the Biltmore Estate. Needless to say, my experience was much better this time—plus I didn’t get stranded there! If you have no clue what I’m talking about, do yourself a favor and read the post here!
Spring is the perfect season to visit the Biltmore Estate’s gardens. Whether you’re visiting Asheville or you’re a local Ashevillian, I think it’s a great way to spend a day!
When you purchase a garden tour ticket, you can pick any time you want to show up. The ticket is good for the entire day, but not reentry. So, go early, go late—whatever suits your fancy!
The garden tour ticket is also significantly cheaper than the house tour ticket. You can still see the exterior of the house with a garden tour ticket, which I think is the best part of the house anyway!
Depending on the week you go, ticket prices fluctuate by $10-$20. I believe I paid $85 for my garden tour ticket, so I tried to spend as much time as I could in the gardens to get my money’s worth!
When you reach the entry to the gardens and grounds, you will have so many options for where to start your tour! I headed toward the Azalea Gardens, and continued wherever the path took me!
This tour was such a fun and relaxing solo activity, but it would be just as great with friends or family—especially if you bring a picnic!
The Conservatory on the property was absolutely breathtaking! I saved that for last. I will say that of all the places I explored at the Biltmore, the Conservatory was definitely the busiest and loudest. There’s not a ton of room to move around in there, and there were lots of screaming kids LOL! But regardless, if you love unique flowers and tropical plants, it’s a must-see!
Well, that’s all I’ve got for ya today! My afternoon spent exploring the gardens at the Biltmore Estate! If you go, don’t forget to stop and smell the roses—figuratively and literally!
Until next time!
