Take A Carriage Ride Through The Mountains For A Truly Unique North Carolina Experience
North Carolina’s Biltmore Estate offers a variety of ways for visitors to enjoy the house, the gardens, the winery, and more. But most people overlook the carriage rides available over at the estate’s carriage barn. But the 30, 60, and 90-minute carriage rides each offer rare opportunities to see the estate from various vantage points on the property. There are no other carriage rides in North Carolina quite like those at the Biltmore.
