Oak Alley Plantation

Vacherie, Louisiana

If these 300-year-old oak trees could talk, what tales would they tell? Stroll the grounds of this old antebellum mansion from 1839 -- when sugarcane reigned supreme upon the back-breaking toil of slaves -- and you may just chance something spooky. It’s been known to happen: an invisible touch of the arm, a ghostly man in gray, the billowing dust and sound of a horse-drawn carriage … that never materializes. Scared yet?
