Oak Alley Plantation Tour – 3645 LA-18
Vacherie, LA 70090
Tour the grounds, house and be sure to explore the exhibit of slavery & making of sugar cane. Yes you can rent a cabin/dine-drink at the restaurant/have a special event there. Yes, Hollywood is every where. Some of the productions filmed here: Long hot summer, Days of our lives, Ghost hunters, Young & restless, Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte.
Slavery is a horrible part of American history, but I highly recommend you visit this former sugar cane plantation to educate yourself about life on a southern plantation. This place is ran by a non-profit organization and pays the salaries of the tour guides, the upkeep and maintenance of the buildings and grounds, and most importantly the education of the public about a terrible part of history that we ought not forget.
