    Default Suggestions from Niagara to Iowa

    I am heading back to Iowa beginning tomorrow and am tired of the interstate driving! I have a couple of days to get there and would love some suggestions on detours! Quirky is great! I've already hit Chicago, so anything/where else would be appreciated!

    Default I've Been Planning...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    ...a possible similar RoadTrip that, in part, covers the ground you're looking at. While you don't have a lot of extra time, you will have the opportunity to take a few scenic side trips away from the Interstates. Take a look at using US-62 down through western New York and Pennsylvania with possible stops in Jamestown, NY at the Lucy and Desi Museum and in Oil City/Titusville, PA at the sites of the first producing oil wells in the world. Then US-6, US-224, or US-30 all offer alternatives to the turnpikes through Ohio and Indiana with some old frontier battlefields (e.g. Tippecanoe) along the way. US-6 across northern Illinois will bring you by Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks on the Illinois River before returning you to Iowa in the Quad Cities area.
