I can’t recommend Oak Alley enough, it was an amazing place.

So we went off to a plantation tour, and without much basis for choice beyond a few brochures, we went to Oak Alley Plantation.
I live in the UK but have lived in Australia too - married with 3 grown up children, retired teacher now on staff team at big church where I work mainly with students, mentoring and discipling but also part of the prayer and prophetic team.

Along the Mississippi River between Baton Rouge and New Orleans lies Oak Alley Plantation. I stopped here on a road trip from Houston to New Orleans last October. This is the view from the balcony of the antebellum mansion to the quarter-mile stretch of 300-year-old oak trees.
