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.

The big house, grounds, and picnic areas are lovely, our tour guide was interesting and informative (he's a 3rd generation Creole who inserts French here and there in a way that sounds authentic rather than canned), the self-guided walking tour of the slaves' quarters was...More
