Plantation Road borders the Mississippi and reaches Baton Rouge, the administrative capital of Louisiana. It's actually the road where, during the golden age of slavery, more than 400 sugar and cotton plantations stood. Now, some of these historic plantations are open to the public, so you can learn about the culture and history of Louisiana. We particularly recommend Laura Alley and Oak Alley, but there are many others. The road crisscrosses the Louisiana countryside and is surrounded by fields of sugar cane on either side. A very nice trip with an unforgettable historical element.
