If you are looking for a lesson in history and a nice excursion, Destrehen is not too far away and the guides are fantastic. Jeanette was very knowledgeable about the plantation history including details of the family and the slaves who worked there. She also did a great job of describing the surrounding history. We chose Destrehen because it was close to New Orleans (only about 25 minute drive) as compared to some of the other plantations. We were able to Uber there and the tour + wandering around took about 1.5 hours. The live oaks on site are also amazing.
