The Biltmore Estate may lack the castle moniker, but with that glorious French Renaissance façade—and at almost 200,000 square feet—it certainly fits the bill.

Camden, Maine - This classic New England seaside town is so picture-perfect that it was the primary filming location for the 1957 movie about a seemingly idyllic town, Peyton Place.

(Indeed, Mount Battie and Bald Mountain rise up above the harbor & the village, & a hike to the top of the former will reward you with a stellar view.)
Newport is synonymous with tony New England, where sailboats dot the harbor and the well-heeled explore the cobbled shopping wharves. Every summer, visitors flock to Fort Adams, a lush green expanse at the mouth of the Narragansett Bay, for the Newport Jazz Festival and Newport Folk Festival. In the colder months, stay indoors by touring some of the town’s famous estates, most notably Doris Duke’s former home, Rough Point.
