Fodor's Expert Review Plantation Mont Vernon
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Wander past indigenous flora, a renovated 1786 cotton plantation, and an old-fashioned rum distillery at a unique outdoor history and eco-museum. Along the rambling paths of this former wooded estate, with beautiful views of Orient Bay, bilingual signs give detailed explanations of the island's agricultural history when its economy was dependent on salt, rum, coffee, sugar, and indigo. There's a complimentary coffee bar along the way and a delightful gift shop at the entrance.
