New Orleans Plantation Country, LA Visitor's Guide

New Orleans Plantation Country is located Northwest of New Orleans along the Mississippi River. Unlike the city, Plantation Country focuses on the natural beauty of the Gulf Coast and Louisiana. Families can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere filled with local eateries, helpful tour guides, and of course, some of the nation's most historic landmarks.

From Hollywood Blockbusters to legendary works of literature, there is no shortage of intrigue surrounding Plantation Country. While the plantations remain the top attractions in the area, there are several other popular historic sites and museums including the River Road African American Museum. If you're in the mood for adventure, come face-to-face with gators, snakes, and ancient cypress on a New Orleans Swamp Tour. Whether into history, dining, excursions, or relaxation, there is always something incredible to experience down on the plantation!
