Overview

A powerful testimony to the rich history of the antebellum south, Oak Alley invites visitors to explore all facets of her plantation past. The Slavery at Oak Alley exhibit, Civil War exhibit, Sugarcane Theater and Big House offer an experience as compelling as the plantation’s 25 historic acres and 300 year old allee of oaks.

Terribly maintained. Terribly managed. Very disappointing. Photos can be very deceiving. Don't even try the restaurant. Terrible food. All the furnishing and the slave quarters are fake. The actual slave cabins were not that close to the property owner's house. Very inauthentically reconstructed.

The Whitney plantation! Hands down the most informational. It’s more of a museum and than a historical tour within credibly knowledgeable guides.
