Boston to Chicago drive (things to do)

Jump to last reply

I'm driving home to Chicago in mid August with my family (two adults and two kids ages 8 and 13) from Boston. Any thoughts about what is along the route that's worth stopping for or going a little out of our way for? It looks like the route will take us past Albany, Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo, then south past Erie and west along the southern shore of Lake Erie through Ohio. We're planning two or three days for the trip, longer if there are interesting things to do along the way. We're not big hikers but we like pretty views, history, and kitschy or fun or out-of-the-way things. Is Ithaca worth a detour? What about the Adirondacks? I've looked in guidebooks and on the websites for the cities we'll be passing but there is so much information that it gets overwhelming. I doubt we'll want to stop in Indiana because by then we'll be so close to home that we'll just want to keep going. But I'm interested in suggestions for the other states we'll be passing through. I'd like to hear from others who've discovered fun things to do along this route.

Thanks for all your help.
