What a beautifully preserved plantation. If visiting New Orleans, take time to drive out of the city and see this beauty. Only takes about 50 minutes to get there. We spent about 2 hours touring the house, slave section, and grounds.

Aesthetically I loved this place. Best looking plantation i saw while in the South. I think it’s because the grounds were stunning themselves and combined with the beautiful Greek style mansion, it was truly remarkable. Such a sad history though. Like all the other plantations,...More

This was a fabulous walk around tour of the well maintained grounds, slave quarters, and the "Big House". This is pretty much the epitome of a Louisiana sugar cane plantation. The mansion would have been magnificent in its day, and still is. The slave quarters,...More

You know it's Oak Alley because there is a large riverboat disembarking dozens of tourists on the dock on the Mississippi River in front of the historic plantation. And the parking lot is filled with cars. Located at 3645 Highway 18 or the River Road...More
