    Default 'Best' is a Relative Term

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    If you spend any time reading through the advice given on this forum, you'll find a few recurring themes. One of the most prevalent, because it goes to the very core of what this website is about, is that "There is no single 'best' anything." No best route, no best attractions, no best motel, no best restaurant, no best anything. So, before anyone can give you any meaningful advice, we have to know what you think is good. Are you interested in history? scenery? nightlife? quiet walks? art? music? the off-beat? sports? strenuous activity? romantic? eclectic? contemplative? different? comfortable? cuisine? easy routing? navigational challenges? cost saving? What? simply asking for a generic "best places to stop" will get you nowhere. At a minimum, you have to define what you mean by 'best'.

    To tag onto AZBuck's comments, I can throw out many different locations. Perhaps half of them won't interest you. Hershey PA (chocolate factory, theme park). Gettysburg PA. Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Wright Bros history, Dayton OH. Museum of the Air Force (incredible aviation history museum), Wright-Patterson AFB near Dayton. Neil Armstrong Museum, Waponetka OH. Amish country, PA and IN. Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio. Cedar Point Amusement Park, Sandusky, OH.

    BTW, you're looking at a two day drive of about 400 miles per day via the shortest route. So that does leave you a little bit of "play room" to find something interesting for YOU to see.
