Driving from NYC to Cincinnati, OH - Cool stuff to do en route???

We will be driving from NYC to Cincinnati going through Pennsylvania and Northern Ohio... And I would LOVE some suggestions of places to stop along the I-80 and the I-71.
I don't want to leave these roads by more than 15-20mins so Cleveland and Pittsburgh are out, but PLEASE suggest other little-known stops.
Beautiful sites, Antique shopping, Home-brewed Beer would all be GREATLY appreciated!!!!

A couple of stops not little known, but worthwhile are Lambertville NJ and New Hope, PA (within minutes of each other), 2 nicely situated little river towns with plenty of antique shopping. These are about 1.5 hours after leaving NYC. Near the other end of your trip is the National Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH. This is a fabulous air museum - one of the best of its type in the country. I'll leave it to others to fill in the middle.

BTW, if you stop at Lambertville/New Hope you will need to begin your trip on a different route, but end up the same. It will add about 45 minutes max to your drive to Cincinnati.

There is good antiquing in Springfield OH just off I70. Why are you going via northern Ohio?
Good antiquing also near Cincy in Waynesville.
