One of the best things you can do for planning your three days in New Orleans is to go online to neworleansonline.com

That site will give you lists of things to do, hotels, restaurants, museums, historical sites, parks, maps of the different neighborhoods, coupons, etc. You can then download/order an invaluable Visitor's Guide, as well.

With only three days in the city, I would stay in the French Quarter, you will most likely not need your car during that time (parking at hotels ranges from $20-35 a day, so be sure to ask when you book) since you can walk, ride a bus/streetcar or take a short cab ride to most places that visitors want to see. After looking at the site, you might want to come back to this forum and ask a few specific questions regarding certain things...You will have a wonderful time in New Orleans and three days will go by in a flash.
