Labor Day weekend heralds the traditional end of the summer season, and there are a variety of single day and ongoing events in the Asheville area that may interest you. Wildberry Lodge is the perfect place to stay while you check out these 5 things to do in Asheville now through Labor Day weekend!
- Biltmore Gardens Railway
Now through September 7, 2020 at Biltmore
The Biltmore Gardens “railway” is a delightful botanical model train display featuring small-scale replicas of the estate’s structures, including Biltmore House, the Lodge Gate, and even a small version of the Conservatory itself. The structures are painstakingly hand-crafted using natural elements such as leaves, bark and twigs collected from the estate grounds. A one-of-a-kind, fun-for-all-ages garden experience!
