    My best guess would be to check out Pittsburgh, which should offer an interesting selection of restaurants. Chowhound has a fairly active forum on Pittsburgh eats at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/316898. You might also consider hitting up some of the wineries in central PA, including those on the PA Wine Trail near Harrisburg (http://www.pawinetrail.com/map.html).

    Not sure if this counts as historical or not but a tour of the infamous Eastern State Penitentiary might be a fun. You can see some of the sites in Philly's Old City and catch a bus near the Constitution Center for a short ride to the prison: http://www.easternstate.org And of course everyone can run the Rocky steps in front of the Philly Art Museum.

    Honestly, I don't pity you, having just lugged our two young 'uns from Virginia to Tennessee on a 500-mile road trip. Smart move to break things up. I'm thinking Pittsburgh might be a good option for your return-leg pit stop, a place where you'll get some good overnight hotel deals as well as the chance to visit toddler-friendly attractions like the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh and National Aviary. If you'd rather just break the drive up in a single day, maybe consider the Children's Museum of the Valley in Youngstown (if you're driving I-80) or Ohiopyle State Park (if you're driving I-76). Good luck -- pack a portable DVD player and a car-power cable!

    Don't miss out on Philadelphia. There's the Liberty Bell, great food, Independence Hall, and a slew of museums. If you're looking for more, head to Falling Waters, a home designed by the famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright (http://www.fallingwater.org/). I've had the chance to visit, and it was breathtaking.
