A tour of the Westbank plantations

If anyone needs to take a tour for purposes of learning about history or to relax their minds, then a visit to the different plantations on the west bank of the Mississippi river is recommended. A tour t the Oak Alley is recommended for lovers of architecture. Also, one needs to visit the Laura plantation; this has a lot of information about slavery and the culture of the Creole owners.

First, one should visit the Oak Alley plantation, also known as the “Grande Dame of the Great River Road.” When on tour at the Oak Alley, one gets a chance to admire the beauty of Greek architecture employed in constructing the classic Greek-revival style antebellum home. The name Oak Alley arises from the presence of a canopied path leading to the beautiful Greek designed antebellum home. The canopy is made up of double rows of live Oak trees and extends for about three hundred yards. The oak trees forming the canopy are believed to have been planted in the early 18th century.

Next stop for any tourist should be the Laura plantation; a plantation started in 1805 with a different and unique culture. Surrounded by sugar cane fields, the Laura holds the historic slave quarters and is also a Creole plantation. On a guided tour here, tourists learn about the well talked off yet miserable ways of living of the four Creole owners’ generations as well as their slaves.

To enjoy a more personal experience, especially if one is on a guided tour, a smaller group of not more than 13 people is recommended. Being in a small group provides room for easy asking and answering of questions between the tourist and the tour guide.

Journey back in time to the Antebellum South with a tour of two separate plantations located on the Westbank of the Mississippi River. First, visit Oak Alley Plantation, which has been called the "Grande Dame of the Great River Road". Next, tour Laura Plantation, a historic sugar plantation built in 1805 displaying a different and unique culture. The small-group atmosphere with maximum 13 people ensures a more personal experience.

On your ride out to Oak Alley Plantation, you will see and hear all about Whitney, Josephine, and Evergreen Plantations. Your guided tour of Oak Alley Plantation will allow you time to admire this jewel of Greek Revival architecture. The quarter-mile canopy of giant live oak trees, believed to be nearly 300 years old, forms an impressive avenue leading to the classic Greek-revival style antebellum home.

Next visit Laura, a Creole Plantation and her historic slave quarters surrounded by sugar cane fields. The guided tour transports you with dramatic detail into the charmed yet tragic lives of four generations of Creole owners and their slaves.
