This is really a fantastic place to see. The oak alley alone is worth the visit but spending more time to have an insight on the plantation story and visiting the exhibit is definitely recommend.

I could have just gone to see Oak Alley simply to see the iconic trees that are hundreds of years old. And of course, to sip on a Mint Julep while strolling underneath their majestic branches.

We enjoy getting out and walking and exploring. And, this was a fun low-key place to do it. Beautiful grounds with rich Southern roots. Loved every minute of it. Take the house tour, grab a Mint Julep, and ask for Allison. She was one of...More
