The Biltmore is offering a summer special where kids 16 and younger are admitted to the estate for the day for free (with ticketed adult). This special runs May 26 through Labor Day, Sept. 4. Also, on Father’s Day, dads can get a ticket for just $25 with the purchase of another adult or youth ticket. You also save on tickets when you purchase them a week or more in advance. You can buy tickets in advance at biltmore.com, or by phone at 800-411-3812.

Have you ever taken kids to the Biltmore? There are lots of fun things to do in addition to the main house tour! Here are some ideas, courtesy of Piedmont Parent:

  • From the Kids Audio Tour of Biltmore House to the Biltmore Treasure Hunt, younger guests can see the Vanderbilts’ grand home from a different perspective designed to entertain. Kids of all ages will want to check out Antler Hill Barn and Farmyard, with blacksmithing and woodworking demos and friendly animals to cuddle.
  • See the new displays in Antler Hill Village. George Vanderbilt’s railway travels are highlighted in a 250-foot long model train display featuring landmarks from Vanderbilt’s international travels. A construction team with Applied Imagination handcrafts architectural elements using leaves, twigs and natural materials. Five model trains run along five track loops, passing by miniature versions of the Biltmore Rail Depot, the USS Vanderbilt Steamship, Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triomphe, London Bridge, and more. An intricate model of Biltmore House and other estate buildings created from thousands of Lego blocks will be on display at the Wine Shop in the Winery and Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate.
  • All ages will enjoy a stroll through Biltmore’s magnificent gardens, which erupt in bright colors each summer, with towering tropical foliage, flowers that attract both butterflies and hummingbirds, and the heady scent of the historic rose garden. Take a hike to the Bass Pond, and beyond that, a gentle waterfall.
  • Antler Hill Village & Winery comes alive on weekend evenings when Live After Five takes place. Live music on the Village Green features jazz and pop. A kids’ Grape Stomp is held nearby, and casual food choices are available for purchase.
  • Take a horseback ride. In addition to hikes and strolls, guests may ride horses along trails with views of Biltmore House. Some of the trails are the exact ones traveled by George and Edith Vanderbilt, and their daughter Cornelia, when they lived on the estate.

Thanks to Lelia for sharing, and to Piedmont Parent for the fun ideas!
