3. The Best Secret Castles

Who says you have to go abroad to see castles? Castles are among America’s best kept travel secrets. Bishop Castle in Colorado has Gothic-style architecture and has details to delight any visitor, including a castle dragon. Wing’s Castle in New York was the brainchild of Peter and Toni Ann Wing, and built from 80% recycled materials. Along with tours, it offers bed-and-breakfast accommodations. In Salisbury Park in Massachusetts stands Bancroft Tower, a miniature castle erected in 1900 and listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
