Having never been on this planned route ourselves, how about the St Louis Arch? And good BBQ joints along the way? Hallmark card factory??????

Hey, thanks for all the great suggestions and keep them coming! A couple are already on our list but moist we hadn't thought of.

Keep them coming and I'll do some sifting. Happy Camping!

The American side to the Falls is a little run down but Goat Island is nice. You can drive and park there and see the brinks of the Horseshoe and American Falls up close. You can also book a ride on The Maid of the Mist--it'll take you almost to the base of the Falls(you will need a raincoat!). There's also the Cave of the Winds tour. The surrounding Park is nice and there are a couple restaurants in the area(the haunted Red Coach Inn. Hard Rock, etc.). You can also either walk or drive over the Rainbow Bridge into Canada for the Clifton Hill tourist area. There are more shops and restaurants there as well as a great view of both Falls. There is also the Skylon restaurant. It's a rotating 775ft. tower that gives you a great view of the Falls while you eat. Parking on either side shouldn't be too much of a bother.
If you're a history buff, check out Old Fort Niagara in Youngstown NY--about 15 minutes from the Falls.
Letchworth State Park is about an hour and a half from the Falls.
Always interesting to see people's reactions to the Falls or Letchworth. Having grown up here, it's always been in my backyard. We're looking to come your way this summer to see Dripping Springs and visit Luckenbach and Galveston Pier.

While in the Niagara region on the Canadian side, drive north along the parkway to Niagara-on-the-Lake. One of the most beautiful towns in North America and worth a visit.

The Hermitage in Nashville, Andrew Jacksons home. I second the Air Force Museum in Dayton and take the tour of the former Air Force Ones. Its located in a different hanger across the field so you will need to sign up and present your drivers license for a background check to be allowed on the base.
I also second the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and the museum below it.

If you do go to northern Michigan do Sault St. Marie and the Soo locks and do Mackinac Island too. If you cut across and enter MI. at Detroit go to Greenfield Village.
