It's should be on the to do list for a visit to New Orleans to visit one of the plantations, from my understanding only about 7 or so left so get in while they are still around.
Included in your visit to Destrehan is a tour and they give you a great background on the family visit of the Plantation as well as the slavery on the plantation.
Having not seen the other plantations in the area I think this one would be a good choice, it's located about 30 - 40 minutes outside New Orleans.
