Destrehan Plantation
Our family loved our visit to the plantation. Our tour guide, Beverly, taught us more about the Louisiana Purchase, the influence of French culture, revolt of 1811 and the importance of the time era than we had ever learned. It was a beautiful sunny day - great visit with beautiful scenery. ♥️ Highly recommend this tour to visitors.
