Known for its hundreds of plantations, River Road is the home of the antebellum mansions where Louisiana’s upper class made their fortune in harvesting the sugarcane known as “white gold”, and where slaves endured day-to-day hardships under the colonial laws of the Code Noir.
Along the River Road you will see Columbia Plantation, Whitney, Felicity and St. Joseph, and you will visit Oak Alley and either Evergreen or Laura plantations. On your return to New Orleans, experience a different set of scenery as you pass through Louisiana’s wetlands and Lake Pontchartrain.
