What would be some fun sites/museums/attractions. to visit on the way back from DC with a 10 year old? Have done the Rock and Roll HOF and Hershey's in the past but looking for something new to do in western PA or eastern OH. Will be visiting Gettysburgh on the way in. Any ideas greatly appreciated!
.....I was born to synthesize.....
flight 93 memorial is on your way back.
Flight 93 National Memorial is located in southwestern Pennsylvania. The memorial is within a 500-mile radius of two-thirds of the nation's population.
Pittsburgh - 1 1/2 hours driving time.
Washington, D.C./Baltimore area - 3 1/2 hours driving time.
Philadelphia - 4 hours driving.
New York City - 5 hours driving
Driving times are approximate.
Thanks AMwood. Didn't think of that one.
i went to it on the way back from DC with my daughter when she was about that age before it was finished. it was a very emotional experience. i was very happy i took the time. it's not that far off the highway.
Tell your kid you are going to visit George Washington's bath tub in Berkeley Springs, WV.
You have kennywood - a very poor man's cedar point - outside of Pittsburgh.
It's a little out of the way, but you could hit the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH is about 365 miles from Wash. DC., and about 60 miles south of Cleveland.
Edit: Beaten by a few seconds! Also link does work.
Either this website doesn't exist or is not currently available.

Thanks for the suggestions! Might take a gander at the Pro Football HOF or the Flight 93 memorial.
You will be sorry you didn't check out Washington's bath house.
Well, we are going to see Washington's Mount Vernon estate, so maybe seeing his natural springs bathtub in West Virginia would be sort a like the cherry on top of a sundae for George's life...
Fallingwater is pretty cool and worth seeing if you're in the SW PA area.
America’s most famous architect, designed Fallingwater for his clients, the Kaufmann family.
It instantly became famous, and today it is a National Historic Landmark. The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy is entrusted to preserve Fallingwater for generations to come.
If you want more George Washington history, you could go to the Fort Necessity battlefield near Uniontown, PA.
Another idea would be Harpers Ferry, WV.
Thanks Eyes, ....sounds like a good idea.
Gettysburg? maybe a little too serious for 10, but if Flight 93 was interesting, parts of Gettysburg would be as well. Easy drive home to DC at the end of the day.
My Blood Runs Green.....
Glad I'm not the only one thinking this.
My parents dragged me to Gettysburg when I was around that age. My dad was way into Civil War history and we visited several battlefields on that trip.
I was bored out of my mind for most of it. Not because the subject matter was too serious, but because old walls and big fields isn't that interesting when you're 10.
