The Oak Alley Plantation has been called the "Grande Dame of the Great River Road." The quarter-mile canopy of 300 year-old live oak trees form an impressive avenue leading to the classic Greek-revival style antebellum home. Historical documents describe the epic tale of five families and over one hundred slaves that called this plantation their home.
Travel back in time down Louisiana's Great River Road for your rendezvous with two great southern plantations: the Oak Alley Plantation and Laura Plantation. Located on the Mississippi River between the historic cities of New Orleans and Baton Rouge, discover what it was like to live on a 19th-century plantation in the River Region.
