We hardly need an excuse to visit Asheville, N.C., but fans of PBS’s Downton Abbey now have one. The period drama’s costumes will go on a tour of the U.S. and are taking up residence at the Biltmore Estate (1 Lodge St.), starting Feb. 5 through May 25.

The traveling exhibition features nearly 40 costumes and jewelry from the show and will be on tour through the U.S. through 2017, but this is the closest spot.
