The park is best experienced through camping, hiking, and mountain biking. If you’re looking to enjoy a quiet and secluded weekend vacation, it is best to visit the park during the fall because it is off-season and there are not much visitors to the park.

The Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina is a perfect spot to visit if you and your loved one is up for some history. The chateau, which is inspired by French architecture, was once the home of George Washington Vanderbilt. It is still owned by Vanderbilt’s descendants, much it has been reduced by 85,000 acres after the widow of Vanderbilt sold that land to the federal government. These 85,000 acres were then converted to the Pisgah National Forest which you can also visit for your weekend getaway. The estate itself on which the house stands is in itself 8,000 acres and is a National Historic Landmark. All in all, the house is a showcase of rich history during its heyday, including a display of how a Biltmore House maid could’ve lived at those times.
