We will have a rental car and wish to spend a day touring plantations. Can anyone suggest an itinerary of what plantations to visit, which to see first, second, etc? Would plan to be at first plantation when they open. Thanks.
I've only been to Oak Alley plantation, but we also rented a car and found that was the best way! A lot of the main plantations are along River Road so it would be easy to stick to the area to maximize your touring time and minimize the time driving from one to another. We had a recommendation that Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the quietest days, and if you are able to arrive close to opening hours then you will avoid the tour buses and large groups. I hope that this helps a bit if you haven't already been on your trip :)
