If you've always wondered what Creole actually means, if you want to know how life on a plantation really looked like, if you want to see a world-class renovation in progress (not only the initial renovation, but the current one, which started after the devastating fire in August 2004), if you want to meet some of the best and nicest guides in Louisiana...
The tour of the historic LAura Plantation has been called
"The Best History Tour in the USA" by the Lonely Planet series of guides, and I personally could not agree more. No sugarcoating, but lots of sugar cultivation ;-)
One of a kind, the closest to my heart, the Creole Plantation Laura is not to be missed if you visit Louisiana.
