Visiting Plantation Country

Experience Louisiana’s Plantation Country beginning in the state capital Baton Rouge. Home of Louisiana State University and their Tiger Athletics, as well as Southern University and the Jaguars, life is never dull in Baton Rouge. Catch the excitement of fall football at Tiger Stadium or SU’s Mumford Stadium. Head indoors for Basketball action at the Southern Campus Mini-Dome or LSU’s Deaf Dome – the Maravich Center. Don’t miss the "Taste of a Tiger Tailgating Party" the end of August, kicking-off the season. Hosted at the Baton Rouge River Center, this is the biggest tailgating event of the year - Sports are just one good reason to put yourself in Louisiana’s Plantation Country.

The rich traditions of Plantation life greet visitors along the Great River Road. Following the path of the Mississippi River, antebellum plantation homes bring Louisiana’s heritage to life. Houmas House Plantation and Gardens between Baton Rouge and New Orleans is called the Crown Jewel of Louisiana’s River Road. Tour the grand antebellum estate and gardens, browse the rooms of the main house coined “The Sugar Palace” and have a delightful meal or brunch at Le Petite Houmas Restaurant – you’ll love plantation life!

The 2011 Greater Baton Rouge State Fair opens October 27th and runs through November 6th. Located between Interstate 12 and Interstate 10 on Airline Highway at Bayou Manchac, this late season fair makes a great getaway. See Baton Rouge areas top livestock and agriculture and enjoy live entertainment, rides and games.

Anyone for Andouille? LaPlace, 25 miles west of New Orleans is the Andouille Capital of the World. Join the Celebration at the 2011 St John Parish Andouille Festival in LaPlace. Held at St John Community Center on Highway 51, come and enjoy the gumbo and jambalaya taking top honors for best use of Andouille sausage. Run off the calories at the 33rd Annual Andouille Run and meet 2011’s Miss Andoille and Teen Miss Andouille. Bring friends and family October 14th through the 16th for some authentic Louisiana food and fun.

Evergreen Plantation and San Francisco Plantation are located in St John Parish not far from LaPlace. Both Plantation homes are open for visitors and have been restored and filled with period antiques from America’s antebellum period. After a plantation tour, don’t miss a swamp adventure and enjoy authentic Louisiana – spend a couple of hours in the moss-draped Manchac Swamp spotting alligators, eagles and waterfowl.
