There are inherently many problems when traveling with kids. You need to carefully balance things you want to do – with things that will keep their interest. Or, “boring stuff” (as they’ll say) with “cool stuff” (that they want). Naturally, with all the other items on our vacation (like Zip Lining and Pinball) we figured we could add a trip to the Biltmore Estate without anyone trying to destroy priceless artwork. We were wrong.
This week we visit the Biltmore Estate. It was a great side trip and the kids (mostly) enjoyed it. There was a slight mishap with our youngest deciding he really really really wanted to reach out and touch pieces of Chihuly glass (not that he would actually do it… or that I’d admit to publicly). On a side note… if your kid does (hypothetically) touch things like this… I’ve been told no sirens blare and no guards appear (hypothetically).
