3 Reasons Why You Will Love the Biltmore Summer Concert Series
1. You Can Visit a Gorgeous Venue and Location
If you are unfamiliar with the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, it is the family home of George Vanderbilt II. It was built between 1885 and 1895 and sits on an 8,000-acre property that is a lot of fun to explore. Even today, a Vanderbilt descendant still owns the property. Today, you can tour the house and grounds as well as enjoy a meal and a drink in their nearby Antler Hill Village. When you decide to go to one of the shows of the Biltmore Summer Concert Series, you will not only have access to the grounds but for an extra $25 you can have access to the home as well. This means you could spend a few hours going on a tour of the Biltmore estate, getting settled in on the property, enjoying a meal at one of the Biltmore restaurants, and then go to the show.
