Day 3 - Oak Alley Plantation

First stop; Once serving as an antebellum sugar cane homestead, Oak Alley Plantation is named after its most distinguishing feature, a row of 300 year old oak trees. This leafy canopy forms a quarter-mile path leading to the Mississippi River. Restored to its 19th century grandeur, this classic Greek revival-style antebellum mansion is breathtaking.
