And roadside americ-esque or cool thing to see suggestions. I haven't mapped out route yet...
I don't especially want to mind-numbingly drive I-80 all the way

my parents just finished an epic cross-country drive and def did that part of the country
but i am guessing perhaps that their stopping for good bird-watching isnt the kind of stuff you were looking for? :dunno:
:lol:

I'm going to map out a semi back road route. I reallyreally hate rt 80. I like to see the small towns. Unfortunately most of the attractions and shops along more rural routes are out of business because of the bigger highways.

google maps has an "avoid highways" option
and then you could use their "search nearby option"
that is what i would do...

if i were you, i would hug the lake shore as long as possible
maybe stop and check out the dunes along the lake in northern indiana
a road trip sounds fun :smile:

RR Hall of Fame is AWESOME! And, Cleveland ROCKS! Go have a beer on the dock side while you're there. Great restaurants and a very fun place to people watch. I can get you specifics if you want, may take a day or two.

Here ya go Kashmir!!! Response from Gregg...

Hi!!!
Not sure what they may be into, but there are a lot of cool things there, including the R&R H of Fame, & the Rats!! There's a House of Blues with some great acts usually, the area by the water is actually called the "Water Front," I think. There are some nice river boat cruises, the Hard Rock Cafe there is pretty cool too, as its a Huge Guitar overlooking the river. There are lots of Wine Bars with great food, Wine (of course!) & Beer. There are a couple of Breweries that are pretty good as well. There's the Cleveland Museum of Art & the Museum of Contemporary Art. The Cleveland Playhouse. There's even a "Bar Louie" Bar!! Blue Point Grille is an awesome restaurant, but is pricey! Divine Wine Bar is a really cool place... (right near Cleveland Chophouse & Brewery) one room off to the side has a huge fire place, & large comfy furniture... great wines, beers, & cocktails, as well as great apps! There's a really cool Cajun place, but i can't find it online, & i don't recall the name. Its not far from the Hard Rock, maybe a few blocks. I haven't been to Cleveland in a couple years though. I hear "Fat Cats" is a pretty cool place to eat, as well. Have 'em look online too, as I may have forgotten some cool things!!
Bye for now...

Disregard the "rats" thing. One of my favorite things to do while visiting when G went for classes was to bring the fancy doggie bags to the park and feed the rats. Yes, I already know I'm different. :lol:
