Take a journey back in time and visit Oak Alley and Laura plantations—both magnificent estates of historic significance. Life on a working plantation—from slavery to family affairs—is highlighted on this tour to the Mississippi River banks.
Leave New Orleans behind and travel through the River Road region on your way to 2 of the most recognizable plantations in the country. Laura Plantation, once named Duparc (after its wealthy creator), opens its doors so you can see the main house and the slave quarters. See characteristic Creole furnishings and other luxuries before touring the cabins where plantation slaves resided.
Oak Alley is widely known and easily recognized by its spectacular 0.25-mile (0.4-km) tunnel of oak trees leading down to the Mississippi River. Stand under the shade of these 300-year-old trees, on the soil of ancient plantation grounds. Learn about the creation of this national historic landmark and hear stories about the lives of the people who once called this mansion their home.
