Are there any castles in America I can visit?
I want a real bonified castle, not a fort. One day I will get to travel to Europe and see all the castles there, but till then I want to see what the USofA has to offer.
Iolani Palace is the Hawaiian royalty's home.
Hammond Castle is located in Massachsetts.
Castello di Amorosa is built in the style of 12th century Tuscan castles. It is located in Napa Valley.
Bishop's Palace is located in Galveston, Texas.
Hearst Castle in California is 115 rooms. Has massive gardens, too.
Berkeley Castle in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia
Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine, Florida, actually built as a defensive fortification
There are several castles that were bought and moved brick by brick to the US by the wealthy in the late 1800s, one of which is in the Midwest. Wikipedia has a list of American castles that include those.
Apparently there are a great many.

I've been to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. We went at Christmas because of the decorations. It was nice but I realized I just wasn't a big old house person. The thing I liked best was a wonderful old music box that had different disks to play different tunes. Absolutely worth the trip...
Yes, come to Fonthill Castle in my home of Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. https://www.mercermuseum.org/visit/fonthill-castle/

What are the best historical houses and castles to visit near London?I would like to take some day trips outside of the city, and would love to see some castles or country houses - but don't want too much of a hassle with public transport. Any suggestions?

When did you last visit a castle? Where was it and what was it called?
