The famous Oak Alley is shown in many movies. During the tour you have an opportunity to visit the house, learn its' story, and learn a lot about past life in the South and slavery. Terrific views and a great lesson of history!
We drove out here from New Orleans for the day, after hearing a lot about it. We arrived early in the day, shortly after they opened. The grounds are beautiful, and the house has some nice things to see, with one room filled with pieces...More

There is a guided tour of the big house and a guided tour of the slave homes, where they tell what life would have been like, from both sides. You can walk around the grounds at your leisure. It’s $25 for adults, $10 for teenagers and $7 for 6-12 years old. Under 6 is free. There are companies that will take you there as well, and several other plantations within a relatively short distance, but I didn’t do that, so you’d have to search for plantation tours. Hope this helps.
