When I was a little girl, I dreamed I'd live in a house with a wraparound porch and huge backyard with a massive tree like this one, perfect for climbing or dangling.

Oak Alley Plantation is a historic plantation located on the Mississippi River in the community of Vacherie, Louisiana. It is protected as a National Historic Landmark. It is named after its distinguishing feature, an alley or canopied path created by a double row of live oaks about 800 feet (240 meters) long, which was planted in the early 18th century, long before the present house was built. The alley leads towards the Mississippi River.
