    The village of White Castle sits in the shadow of a levee on the Mississippi River, in the middle of Louisiana's Plantation Country. Nearby Nottoway Plantation is the big draw to White Castle, and it stands apart as the largest intact plantation in the South (nearby Belle Grove Plantation was even larger, was demolished in 1952). Contrary to popular assumption, White Castle is not named for Nottoway, but for a namesake plantation home that was removed due to flooding; White Castle Plantation's original site now sits below the Mississippi River.

    Today, White Castle is one of the many rural towns you'll find on River Road, two stretches of highway that line the river and feature many of Louisiana's most famous plantation museums. Road cyclists can take a break and dine at Nottoway while riding the Morgan City to White Castle biking trail. Tour operator Acadian Swamp Tours is also headquartered in the area — join local guides on a voyage to the heart of Louisiana's wetlands.
