The Great River Road, where the culture that thrived during the 18th and 19th centuries, meets the industrial age. Beautifully restored antebellum plantations grace the road along the Mississippi River, between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. In contrast, industrial plants mar the scenery, and the man-made levee - constructed in the early 20th century in a desperate ploy to keep the mighty Mississippi on a set course - obstructs the river views that plantation residents once enjoyed.

Nevertheless, you can always park your car, climb up the levee, and enjoy the magnificent views of the Mighty Mississippi.
