    In our experience, the best value (read: cheapest) and most rewarding venues for on-the-go families are parks and forests. And you're in luck with this drive, with two outdoor options catching our eye: 2,856-acre Maurice K. Goddard State Park and 21,122-acre Pymatuning State Park, both in PA and both along your route. There's hiking, fishing, and biking, plus a couple of small swimming beaches at the latter park (just outside of Andover). You might try the Crawford County CVB website (www.visitcrawford.org) for indoor options.

    Though it's located in southwest Pennsylvania, I highly recommend visiting Fallingwater. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater is one of the most unique homes in the world (http://www.fallingwater.org/explore?to=0). If you're traveling with kids. Pinegrove Dude Ranch in the Catskills, NY is also a place worth checking out. They offer riding lessons for all levels as well as child care for those that are too young to get on a horse. For more ideas, don't forget to check out our travel Pennsylvania and New York travel guides. Also, it's worth reading our Road Trip Itinerary. YOu might see something worth stopping for (http://away.com/itinerary/excerpts/madmaps-nyc-scenic-drive.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.

    Might skew a little young, but Great Wolf Lodge in Scotrun, PA, has a year-round indoor waterpark plus lots of other kids' activities. You could also try skiing, of which there are plenty of resorts in the Pocono Mountains with snowmaking facilities, ski schools, and non-skiing activities like tubing, ice-skating, and snowshoeing. Try somewhere like Seven Springs or Camelback.
