It has a tiny airport and is a bit isolated — even by car. That being said, if visiting the Biltmore Estate is on your bucketlist — then YES visit now, even if your visit is short. I say this because from my own research, the cost of admission has only increased each year. Even though admission is quite expensive, it will also never be this low again.

However, for many visiting Asheville, they have never even heard of the Biltmore beforehand. If you are in this category, you can feel comfortable skipping out on this and still get an amazing trip out of Asheville. And as a lover of architecture, landscape architecture, walking a lot!
