Virginia to Indiana

My husband and I are planning a road trip from Newport News, Virginia to Indianapolis, Indiana, in late spring or early summer. We want to stop, for a night or two, along the way to take in sights and attractions and would be fine with taking different routes, to and from, in order to maximize places to see and things to do. We've traveled cross country, with military reassignments, in the past, but had little time to stop and see anything not near the interstate highways, so back roads are fine with us now. We're looking for suggestions about attractions worth visiting in West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio, along with favorite hotels, B&Bs and restaurants. The USA is a big beautiful country and we're ready to explore this portion, now. Thanks, in advance, for taking the time to help make our road trip special.

Lebanon, Ohio is an interesting old town--George Washington supposedly slept at the Lebanon Inn (Suuurrre). That is a good place for a lovely lunch and the town is a hotbed of antique shops, as is much of southern Ohio.
Cincinnatti is an interesting big city with the possibility of seeing a Reds game

If you're willing to splurge a bit ($250+ night)

Not far away and not quite as pricey.

Both located in Highland County, gorgeous area of Western VA off Rte 250, which is a great drive and in the general direction of your trip.

How about stopping at the Greenbrier Resort for a nice lunch and then going on the bunker tour. My family went for dinner and an overnight for my mother's recent birthday and then did the bunker tour the next morning. We all enjoyed it, even my teenage niece and nephew. And the Greenbrier is beautiful and fun to simply walk around.
