Start with a visit to the famous Oak Alley Plantation. Witness the quarter-mile avenue of 28 giant live oak trees leading to the house.

Pause at the Slavery at Oak Alley exhibition and explore the stories of those who were enslaved at the site. Learn about the daily lives of slaves including their healthcare, punishment, and life after emancipation. Choose between visiting the Laura or Whitney Plantation for the second part of your tour.
