River Road

If I'm planning a day trip from NO to see some of the Plantations....

Should I take the River Road all the way up (does it go to Baton Rouge?) and along all the plantations. Should I hop on the Interstate to save time? I guess my question is whether the 70 miles of road is interesting in itself or whether I should just drive straight to the plantations the quickest way possible.

Don't take the river road. You will see ugly gas, oil and chemical plants. You can't see the river due the the high levee. It is curvy and runs through a lot of little towns. It is a waste of time.

My advice is to take I-10 to the Gramercy exit and head south to cross the river. Go to a town named Vacherie and see Laura Plantation and Oak Alley.
