Default Going from MI to GA

What is there to do or see on the way? I am taking my 6 year old to my other sons boot camp grad. We are going the end of Jan. We will have a couple of days to make it down there and am wondering what I can stop and see or do so he is not tooooo board on the way.

Cincinnati has a few cool sights. The children's museum is awesome from what my nephew told me.

I drove like a mad man on one tank of gas in 12 hours with my son over the summer. We stopped for Sonics and bathrooms.

Skooter is right..it is an amazing aquarium... plus the Military air museum is incredible too. There are billboard that guide you there along I-75. Eat on the way because the cafeteria there sucks unless you like hot dogs.

YUM and if you're nice, they may empty their grease trap into your biodiesel vehicle.

if the time of day is right, stop at the original Tony Pakos in toledo. http://www.tonypackos.com/index.php

also hear wright-patterson air museum in ohio is very good.

while driving through ohio, cover your michigan license plate with mud and stay 1~2mph under the speed limit on the freeways.

Been to Wright before was cool. yes I know about Ohio..... Those are some cool ideas I will have to print out the list and stop in a couple of places. The aquarium sounds real cool. I just got my jack today but maybe I can stop there to......... Gettysburg sounds really cool for both of us!!
