    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.

    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...
