Take a full day trip deep into the sugar cane fields of south Louisiana to see two different perspectives of plantation life with this double plantation tour of Whitney Plantation & Slavery Museum and St Joseph Plantation. Known for its focus on slavery, the Whitney Plantation unveils the truth lived by enslaved people. Walk through the grounds to see the various plantation structures, gardens, artifacts, and artwork that pay homage to the plight of the enslaved. St. Joseph Plantation is a Creole-style, family-owned, working sugar cane plantation in operation since 1877. The tour guide will give guests a great glimpse into the daily lives of slaves and owners in 1800s as family members personally guide many of the tours. Both of these destinations offer beautiful plantation homes, unique stories, and first-hand narratives of pre-civil war life in the south.
