    Default Nearly Endless Possibilities

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The problem with requests for "the best sites" is that such a phrase varies tremendously from person to person, which is why most of the veteran RoadTrippers who take the time to try to answer are so loathe to use the terms 'must see sites', 'best route', 'don't miss', etc. All I can tell you are some of the more popular and well-known places that are generally on your way. You may not want to visit any of them, but they should at least give you an idea of what's available as you do a little more research as to what you want to see on your trip. Venues include the bucolic such as two major Amish communities, one in Ohio and one in Pennsylvania; the historic including the National Road, Independence Hall and the Erie Canal; the scenic such as Cuyahoga Valley and Shenandoah National Parks and the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania; the contemplative with the National Mall, Antietem and Gettysburg; the celebrative such as the Halls of Fame for football, baseball, and lacrosse; shorefront including the Chesapeake Bay, islands in Lake Erie and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore; and international (if you have passports) with a side trip into Canada. But again, it's up to you and your friend to do the heavy lifting and research all those and the literally thousands of other possibilities to determine what you want to do.
