Three days could be enough depending on where you want to go.
I would pick four days because it's one of our favourite places.
If you are not particularly into music and food (and drinks), probably you'll cover the rest in three days.

New Orleans if probably my favorite place in the States. the longer the better in My opinion! We have been twice for 5 days and 10 days and still not see it all (granted the 10 day trip was mardi gras)

Soo much to do and see there. In January make sure you check for any Mardi Gras parades as carnival begins on the 6th January! Do leave the French Quarter there is so much more to New Orleans. WW2 Museum, the Mississippi, Cafe du Monde (the one on the Mississippi not the one in the shopping centre! Back street Cultural Museum, Garden District etc.

Hi we went to New Orleans halfway through our stay in Orlando, flew with Southwest for 4 nights, this was plenty as we had 3 whole days then, we did a tour every day.
Stayed at Chateau leMoyne Holiday Inn, great location, loved the French Quarter, there are drunks & homeless though. Streetcars are fab in the Garden District.
We did the Mississippi Steam Boat, the Ghost Tour & Swamp Tour, all great & all booked in the uk before we went.
Ruby Slipper is fab for breakfast & Spotted Cat is great for Jazz, get there early
Very very humid in September walking around the city, Hubbie was moaning, on the Steam Boat thought theyd be a breeze, but no! 😳 so calm & so so hot 🤣🤣🤣

Depends on your flight times really. The times to and from Florida can be a bit rubbish depending on who you go with.

Weve been twice and back again this October for a 3 night stay.
I have details in my trippies - Rock n roll to creole 5 state road trip sept 2017 and Keep Calm and have a cocktail March 2018. September was hot. Very hot. March was freezing. Link is in my signature.
We love it there. Really depends on what sights you mean. There are lots of tours on offer or plenty to see on your own. A very walkable city.

Following, because we have just booked a fortnight in February (not Mardi Gras). Its a budget trip really, not In the holiday budget. But we found the sort of flights that are so cheap it would be rude not to go.

We may do a cruise for five nights because it makes the spending much less, but very happy to have a solid week in NOLA afterwards. There are SO MANY restaurants we want to visit!

Amanda has done some brilliant trip reports

Thanks so much for your replies
We are happy to go off exploring on our own and we are also happy to join guided tour
The only planning we have done so far is to book the hotel which is in the central business district
I will read your trip reports Amanda but I might be back with a few questions 😁
