Took our niece's recommendation and visited this plantation. A beautiful day with a tour of the house and slave cabins (very interesting with a knowledgeable guide). Walked the informal gardens and saw our first alligator in the wild sunning itself by a pond. Not expecting that since we weren't on the swamp tour! Agree with another reviewer about the number of people (too many) on the home tour. Lots of plantation history and beautiful gardens although we didn't see all of it due to our time limitations. Allow at least 3 hours to do this place justice.
