Between Baton Rouge and New Orleans you’ll find several beautifully restored antebellum plantations lining the Mississippi River, along River Road. The infamous road stretches about 70 miles in length on either side of the river and includes beautiful views of the river, moss-draped oak trees, wide open fields, and historical plantations. Each plantation is intricately decorated and restored, primarily in the Greek Revival style. Stroll through the lavish landscapes and gardens, just make sure you bring your camera! You’re bound to have a picture perfect day as you travel down one of Louisiana’s oldest roads.
