This place is gorgeous! It's also very informative. We learned so much about slavery, how life was during that time, the area, etc. They even have a restaurant that is quite good.

This plantation is a must to visit. My husband is a photographer and the shoot possibilities are endless here. We went on a hot July day, and waited out the house tours to stay on the grounds until 9pm. You can wander freely without the crowds and it is much cooler. The last house tour is at 5:30pm, so be...

Oak Alley Planation has been the site of a number of movies. It is beautifully restored and the live oak trees that line the walk to the mansion are an amazing sight. We had an excellent guide who toured us through the mansion. The rest of the tour is self-guided with very well done displays. What we particularily valued about... More

We really enjoyed our visit. The staff was very friendly. There was plenty of room to walk along the paths and enjoy the scenery. There were several slave cabins set up with informative displays, some you can even go in. The gift shop was large and there are several places to get food/drink in one central location. There are multiple... More

This was the most beautiful and peaceful place we visited on our vacation. The tour was very informative and a must. Our tour guide was a sweetheart. We were able to walk all around the grounds on a self tour and we were in awe of the beauty. So glad we included this tour!!

300 year old oak trees are standing there, waiting for you. It's quite impressing and the house carries such a rich history.

We passed other plantations and stopped at this one as my son, a NOLA resident, said it was his favorite. The grounds are amazing. The stately oaks forming the alleys on either side of the house are spectacular. Sip a mint julep or creole lemonade while waiting your tour or strolling the property. Beverages and a few gifts are sold... More

Very interesting Anglo-Saxon plantation. Picturesque. Good tour. Efficient operation. Preferred Laura plantation (because of Creole history). Great gift shop and facilities. Beautiful grounds.
