For centuries, wooden wagons rumbled from fields to river docks and the sweet smell of sugarcane filled the sub-tropical air. The muddy Mississippi flowed past 400 plantations along Louisiana's Great River Road, creating empires of wealth, icons of architecture, bastions or culture and legions of slaves.
Today, only a short drive from Baton Rouge and New Orleans, the historic farmsteads, homes, restaurants and inns of Plantation Parade invite you to tour, shop, dine, sleep and enjoy the full richness and diversity of our Great River Road.
