Plantacija “Ąžuolų alėja” (Oak Alley Plantation),
įsikūrusi vakariniame Misisipės upės krante Luisianoje, JAV . Ąžuolų alėja įrėminta įspūdingais, galingais, didingais tris šimtmečius skaiciujančiais ąžuolais. Jų šakos kaip tunelis gaubia visą taką , o šaknys tarsi medžio skulptūros išsiraizgiusios žemės paviršiuje. Tai istorinė plantacija,primenanti labai sunkius ir paslaptingus vergovės laikus. Dėl puikaus kraštovaizdžio ši mėgiama lankytojų vieta taip pat yra puiki vieta įvairių filmų kūrimui.

After the merchants of Danzig joining, the company of amber excavation “V. Stantien and M. Becker” was established. Increasing company’s amber business. Spacious barracks for workers were built. A ship repair factory was opened and port embankment was built and equipped in the northern part of Juodkrantės.
