Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, LA

This is the back of the plantation.

The front of the plantation has these amazing oak trees as one approaches the main building from the street.

Here is one of the cute tour guides at the plantation.  Southern Belles are so hot!  I could just hear Faith Hill's "Mississippi Girl" or George Strait's "Adalida" as I look at this picture.

    The Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, LA is on the way from Baton Rouge to New Orleans.  It is a must stop for anyone visiting the area for the first time.  This plantation was built in the 1830s, and it was owned by Creoles.  It was amazing how they could build such amazing structures back in the 1800s.  There are sugar cane fields all around the area, and this place is near the Mississippi River.  After buying tickets, one can also get a mint julip as one tours the main house and grounds.  There were also cute Southern Belles serving as tour guides.
