Houmas House

An hour's drive west of New Orleans, enjoy a grand tour of the antebellum high life at Houmas House. This Louisiana plantation of yore, with a Greek Revival-style mansion at its center, unfolds across 38 verdant acres of gardens, ponds and one very picturesque live oak alley. Tour 16 rooms filled with period antiques and Louisiana artwork, such as a room-size mural featuring a sugar cane motif in the main hallway.
