Tulane Visit

Hi everyone.

I've been searching these boards for ideas, and I'm sorry if this has already been asked...

We are traveling down for a visit to Tulane for my son. My parents, husband and 2 boys, aged 15 and 16. Since this is a college visit, we don't have much in our budget, but would like to see NO while we are there. My 15 year old is HIGH maintenance and likes to be constantly busy.

What activities would you recommend that he would enjoy? As much as I would like it, plantation tours or history without FUN will not keep him occupied.

Also, can you recommend good restaurants that won't break the bank? We love trying new and different foods.

Thanks much for your help.

Would World War Two Museum be a possibility? My teen girls do not like it, but friend's teen boys love it. Big action movie and the museum has an affordable and good restaurant by Top Chef John Besh called American Sector. The teen girls generally like just walking the Quarter looking at street performers and eating beneigts at Cafe DuMonde and Muffellettas at Central Grocery.

Thanks. The WW II is a good possibility, and we will check out the museum restaurant.

I'm open for any other suggestions!
