The most interesting part of this plantation is the row of large oak trees that line the front walkway from the house to the street. There are house tours that are informative. In addition there is a small restaurant and old slave quarters. If you are in the area it is worth a visit.

This place has the WOW factor down 😊 I arrived at 10am and was able to get some amazing pictures without a single person in sight..it was like we had the place to ourselves. It took us 3 hours to see everything. Oak Alley was so beautiful it seemed we were only there a short time. We had lunch after... More

My favorite book and movie has always been "Gone with the Wind". So i loved the house and grounds of Oak Alley. The tour was nice and they sell mint julips which were yummy. The house was left vacant for many years and the animal took over. So everything in the home is not original. I am glad we took... More

I took a tour from New Orleans and it was a 75 minute drive from there. The scenery was beautiful as due to the terrain, the land was not built up. Plenty of country roads. The plantation was also beautiful. I liked the idea that I was able to purchase a liquid refreshment and sip on it during the tour... More

Definitely worth the afternoon trip. Coming from New Orleans you drive by Laura and St. Joseph Plantations, but definitely makes this your stop. The house and grounds are beautiful and the restaurant, although pricy, is very good. The static slave quarters display is very educational and you'll probably spend as much time going through them as you will on the... More

We had driven to NOLA, so we took our own vehicle to Oak Alley and arrived right at opening. What a beautiful place, be sure to bring your camera! Our tour guide did an excellent job of relaying the history of the plantation and the families that once lived there as she led us through the mansion in period costume.... More

After researching half a dozen plantations to visit, we picked Oak Alley and boy, am I glad we did. This is the best plantation one can visit if short on time. It’s best to drive if you can, and get to see the countryside. The name of this plantation derives from a avenue of 300 year old Oak trees planted... More

The was a top notch stay. The mansion house and grounds are outstanding. We stayed in a cottage suite to the rear of the property. Very clean and well appointed. We stayed on a Monday night so the restaurant was not open- which was disappointing. The mansion grounds are very well maintained. Highly recommend a visit and overnight stay.
