Biltmore tops the list

Asheville's Biltmore House topped the list of most-visited museums and historic attractions in the state last year, according to a survey conducted by Carolina Publishing Associates. (Thanks to the Triangle Business Journal for the snippet.)

"The Asheville estate saw 1.12 million visitors in the year. It was the only state attraction to top the 1 million mark."

Coming in at No. 2 was Discover Place in Charlotte, with 792,500 visitors. The North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro was No. 3 with 752,000 visitors. The N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences ranked No. 4 with 694,800 visitors. And Fort Macon State Park's 620,000 visitors earned it the No. 5 spot in the survey.

The Matthews-based Carolina Publishing Associates publishes the annual Carolina Heritage Guide.
