The grounds of this plantation are spectacular- get there early to avoid the crowds. I found the tour just average especially after visiting Laura. It’s worth the visit though for how picturesque it is.

A great trip out in Louisiana. Beautiful historical deep South sugar plantation. Respectful representation of slave quarters and a lovely house. Gift shop had beautiful Christmas decorations and much more. The bar was pretty good too. Didn't sample the restaurant.
