River Road Plantations NW of New Orleans

Jump to last reply

I'm interested is seeing a few of these plantations, but frankly I am not a "house tour" guy, and will have 3 children who are likely to be even less agreeable to house tours. I know that house tours are obligatory when visiting the south, but prefer to keep them to a minimum. Also the cost: a family visiting Houmas House would be out $100, and I can't fathom paying that much for even 1 plantation, much less 2 or 3.

So anyway, I was thinking that we may only tour Laura Plantation since it is a more reasonable $51 per family. Then are there other plantations where someone can see the outside and get an idea of their grandeur and culture without taking the time and of course paying for a tour?
