San Francisco Plantation was the recipient of the 2015 Travel Attraction of the Year Award. The Travel Attraction of the Year Award is presented to an attraction, museum, historic site, tour organization, etc. that delivers memorable experiences, meets visitor expectations, appeals to a wide range of travelers, understands the value of partnerships and consistently draws visitors to Louisiana. Tailored group itineraries and popular events like Frisco Fest have visitors taking notice of this opulent plantation home.
