Day 1: Depart, HCC Parking Lot 9, on a video WIFI and restroom equipped motor coach, enjoying the great scenery along the way. Our first tour will be St. Joseph Plantation, a sugar cane plantation. Currently, the second season of Oprah Winfrey’s Queen Sugar is being filmed there. Our next stop is Laura Plantation, a Creole Plantation. Creole life in Louisiana exhibited a unique, characteristic thread: the understanding that the family operated as a business and that the business was family. Conclude the evening with dinner and relaxing.
Day 2: After enjoying a continental breakfast, begin your day with Whitney Plantation. Whitney Plantation is a genuine landmark built by African slaves and their descendants. As a site of memory and consciousness, the Whitney Plantation Museum is meant to pay homage to all slaves on the plantation itself and to all of those who lived elsewhere in the US South. Upon arrival, you will visit the Gift Shop; then a 90-minute tour of Whitney Plantation. After the tour, you will sit in the picnic area …a perfect time to review your trip and dialogue about all the historical sights before departing for home.
