Travel Adventures, Cincinnati Attractions & Writing
Season 4 starts January 5.
If you can’t wait til then, The Biltmore Estate is a close equivalent to Highclere Castle, set of the delicious drama Downton Abbey.
Our visit brought to mind inevitable comparisons. Was George and Edith Vanderbilt’s luxurious lifestyle equal to Lord Lady Grantham’s? Did the downstairs dramas of the servants’ quarters mirror those of the attic accommodations of the maids and footmen of Downton? A visit to Asheville, N.C. is definitely worthwhile. I wrote about the estate in my June article (page 14) for Cincinnati Family: http://cincinnatifamilymagazine.com/digital-editions
But most importantly, note that season one of Downton Abbey disappears from Netflix on July 1. Beth and I are watching now while we have the chance!
