Directions - Destrehan Plantation is located a half-mile from from the Destrehan Bridge on Hwy. 48 (River Road). Located 8 miles from New Orleans International Airport. Easily accessible from I-10 and Hwy. 61 by taking I-310 South and exiting at Hwy. 48 (River Road). Turn left at River Road and house is on left at 13034 River Rd. General parking is located on the east entrance (right side of house).
Louisiana is at it's best during the spring months (March and April). The azaleas are budding and the new leaves on the trees are all bright green. A photographer's delight! I found this cyress cabin at the rear of the historic Destrehand Plantation. The massive live oak trees, with their graceful Spanish moss blowing in the breeze, surround the main house for acres and acres. Worth a day trip and the visit.
