They are usually open from noon to 4pm on New Year's Day. Please call to confirm hours.
Open to all ages; however, I found that children get bored very easily. Think about this before you drag little ones there. We took a tour bus there from the French Quarter, but if you rent a car and drive, I think you will see more. Check it out the next time you are down south.

Today, Oak Alley is best known for its stint as Louis' home in the book Interview with a Vampire, and it has appeared in many other movies and television shows over the years.
If you're a history buff, an avid Anne Rice fan, or you just want to escape reality for a couple of hours, I highly recommend visiting here.

Our tour guide here was quite young, and her delivery was very rote. She had memorized the tour, even the pauses so we could laugh or ooh and ahh. The tour told us much about the house, but little about the era and the people who had lived here during that fascinating time in history. The house and grounds are so magnificent, maybe they are expected to speak for themselves.
There is a restaurant on the premises, though it closes at 5pm. A snack bar in the gift shop is an alternative, serving pre-made sandwiches and salads, ice cream, candy and water, soda, and juices. There are Bed and Breakfast cabins on the property. It’s a lovely setting for someone who just wants to relax and do nothing. If you get bored easily, however, I don’t think you’d want to stay more than a couple of days. It’s a long ride into New Orleans or Baton Rouge and there isn’t much in between. The nearest restaurant is B&C Seafood
, but you probably won’t want to eat there more than once.
