We drove out to the Plantation which was only a short drive from New Orleans. There is a savings of $3 if you mention (bring) a brochure that we picked up from our hotel. They also offer a military/AAA discount of $2 off the cost of $18 per person. There is a guided tour through the main house and you can also walk through the grounds. There was a movie partially filmed there in the mule barn that is coming out soon. This plantaion tour is the greatest i've been to but it was informative and interesting. I liked the fact that it "appeared" that this plantation owner seemed to treat his slaves well and there was alot of positive (if you can say anything positive about the slavery time period) things at this plantation. It was also the site of a revolt trials where slaves had revolted.
