    Even though it's been more than a year since this question was posted, I felt the need to chime in for anyone else who may be interested. This past summer, my family spent a week in the Garden of the Gods region in southern IL. Absolutely breathtaking!! We stayed at Golconda Stables--perfect if you're looking for rustic (but not primitive).

    Wow, long road trip. That's about 1,000 miles in one direction, so I can certainly appreciate your desire for some scenery to break up those road miles! Luckily, you'll be skirting some of the most scenic parts of Arkansas and Missouri, which occupy the Ozark Plateau and the sprawling forestlands of Ouachita, Ozark, and Mark Twain national forests. I'd swing a left just before Little Rock, to check out the little town of Hot Springs, AR. Head north from there to discover the beautiful and wild canyons of the Buffalo National River corridor. Great hiking and scenery here! You could also try the lakes around Branson, MO. The Ozark National Scenic Riverway is a bit closer to the I-55/57 corridor. On your way home through Jackson, you might consider a detour down the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway, which runs in a southwesterly direction from near Nashville to Jackson. Check out outdoor recreation site GORP.com for loads of great recommendations for things to do in the places I mention above: http://bit.ly/grk1nA

    The largest Flea Market in the midwest, Shipshewanna Auction and Flea Market, would make for a fun day-long treasure hunt! They are open every Tuesday and Wednesday from May-October. You may also want to continue treasure hunting at Shipshewanna's Antique Gallery. The Blue Gate Theatre and Restaurant offers Amish homestyle cooking and entertainment! There is also a museum called Menno-Hof that tells the story of the Amish and Mennonites.
