Vacherie is located in St. James Parish within the Plantation Country Region west of New Orleans between Donaldsonville and Luling along Highway 18 on the banks of the Mississippi River near Lac de Allemands.
Laura is a Creole Plantation kind of next door on The Great River Road to Oak Alley, and built earlier (1805) and restored to same period.
NOTE: A fire destroyed much of the main house in 2004, however the plantation is still on tours, which take in the out buildings and the story of the rebuilding process
Also note: Oak Alley is not original inside of the building. It has reproductions rather than the original furnishings.
The sign that I saw on the ticket booth as we went through said that they didn't accept credit cards. I was worried... more travel advice
Oak Alley is primarily of interest (in my opinion) for the great live oaks on the grounds. The house itself was gutted,... more travel advice
