Nestled between Baton Rouge and New Orleans are Houmas House and Oak Alley. These architectural icons provide visitors a glimpse into plantation life through exhibits, artifacts, and stories of past. At Houmas House, enjoy 38 acres of the South’s most beautiful gardens, three restaurants, a luxurious Inn and a historic mansion open daily for tours. The guided mansion tour leads guests through the architectural evolution of the mansion and details how a succession of owners and the Mississippi River grew this manor house to today’s grand estate. Once sprawling over 300,000 acres, Houmas House has survived wars, floods, abandonment and the test of time. You will also visit Oak Alley Plantation, the most recognized plantations in all of South Louisiana with its quarter - mile alley of oaks leading to the antebellum mansion. Witness the evolution of a sugar plantation over time & explore 28 historic acres and exhibits. Learn about those who once inhabited the plantation with the exhibits: Slavery at Oak Alley, the “Big House”, interpretive gardens, the People of Oak Alley, and the Sugarcane Theater. As a landscape that speaks truthfully of its past with parts that remain, it offers visitors an unrestricted opportunity to explore, contemplate and imagine.

Could have been better

Oak Alley would have been a great tour but the house tour was rushed. We did not get enough time to really look at and read the displays. The grounds were beautiful. If I Had known there was a bridal show going on at Houmas House I would not have gone. It felt more like a party than a plantation tour. I was very disappointed that I was not made aware of this even when i purchased my tickets.
