Plantation Living In Louisiana

Southern House

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to go back in time? What if you could hop on a bus and go back a hundred or so years? Impossible, right? Well, not quite. You can go back in time by heading out with Red Stick Adventures. This popular tour company offers daytime plantation tours of Myrtles Plantation and Houmas House. Myrtles Plantation tours are available every Tuesday and Thursday. The Houmas House tour isn’t a regularly scheduled tour but can be arranged most days. You can check out the schedule and book your tour online.

How It Works

Red Stick Adventure offers a unique opportunity. The travel company picks you up at an area hotel and drops you off at the plantation. Your admission price is covered, so you just go in and take the plantation tour. You’ll learn all about the plantation from the guide, and then, when you’re done, you just go back to the bus. Red Stick Adventures will drop you back off at the hotel. If you’re staying at the hotel, you can just go into your room. If you live in Baton Rouge, just go back to your car and drive home. It’s that easy.

About the Myrtles Plantation

The Myrtles Plantation is located in gorgeous nearby St. Francisville. This mansion is supposed to be haunted, and you can judge for yourself during the tour. Listen for unexplained noises and keep your eyes peeled for ghosts when you go through the plantation. The tour only consists of a few rooms, but it is well worth it. Also, the grounds are absolutely stunning. You will have a great time even if you don’t see any ghosts.
