Owner description: A powerful testimony to the rich history of the antebellum south, Oak Alley invites visitors to explore all facets of her plantation past. The Slavery at Oak Alley exhibit, Civil War exhibit, Sugarcane Theater and Big House offer an experience as compelling as the plantation’s 25 historic acres and 300 year old allee of oaks.

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 on the veranda, and there is also a restaurant and large gift shop on the property.

They have made a nice exhibit in tribute to slave life contributions to plantation life, and there are a couple of vintage 1920's cars on site.

Stroll the grounds, tour the mansion, and sip a mint julep for a lovely day and taste of The Antebellum Deep South.

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

My wife and I visited both Oak Alley and Laura on the same day. We enjoyed both. The grounds of Oak Alley are spectacular. The plantation has a nice cafe and restaurant as well. The guide that we had was very informative and the home was well preserved.
