NO MORE OAK ALLEY FOR ME! As a Louisiana resident, taxpayer and property owner for 20 years, I have been introducing friends & family to the beautiful & breath-taking Oak Alley for 25 years. Significant to American history, Oak Alley Plantation is a treasure for...More
Oak Alley has its absolutely gorgeous grounds and exterior to make it a 5 star place to visit. I was also very impressed by the way the enslaved people's lives were included in the tour of the main house, and of course, in the exhibits...More
An excellent example of a Pre-civil war Southern Plantation. A must-see. This plantation has been restored and preserved. Examples of slave quarters, a day in the life of a plantation, and, of course, the beautiful Oaks, planted prior to 1786, that lend their name to...More
We went here because our son loves photography and he was told how beautiful this place was. Words cannot describe the beauty. The tour of the main Mansion was informative and it was cool to see the original period furniture and the slave houses. Great...More
Besides its beauty one gets to see how the sugar cane operation worked and the history of what it meant to the region development. They also provide the history of how slaves where organized and lived during the 1800's.

If you can only do one plantation tour in your time in Louisiana, this is the one to do. I did two, and while the other one was very good, this one was one to be remembered because of the gorgeous grounds and main house....More

This plantation has been on my list of places to visit, and I am so that I finally got there. We visited in August, and obviously it was HOT, but there were no crowds, which allowed us to get some nice photos of the plantation...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.
