Unique Asheville: Place to take your parents

  • Fun for adult kids and their aging parents alike, the Biltmore Estate offers lots of options for active visitors, such as horseback rides, hiking, garden strolls, and of course, tours of the famous chateau. But for those seeking a more relaxed pace, the estate also offers plenty of shopping, dining and drinking options, including its own winery and on-site taverns. (Hey, if you’re not used to spending time with your relatives you might need a drink.) However, a visit to the estate can be pricey, so make sure ahead of time that your parents are going to foot the bill. — J.F.
