Also if you go to Hocking Hills, check out The Wilds, which is an exotic wildlife sanctuary built on an abandoned AEP strip mine. About 2:15 from dahntahn.

Rylan - I've been to Centralia! I went there on my first ever road trip actually.

Thanks for all of the advice, everyone! I've got a lot of good leads. :)

Washington DC is a fun place to go, most of the stuff is free, i.e. museums and monuments.

Coincidentally, there was a big article in the Trib about Hocking Hills today. Couldn't find it online.

How do you know that? Are you a stalker? :?

I've actually never been to either the Allegheny Nat. Forest or the Grand Canyon of PA. I'm off to do some research. :)

Those are two excellent suggestions. If you go to the ANF, be sure to see the old growth forest at Hearts Content and/or Tionesta and it's worth the drive to check out Rimrock near Warren, Pa.

Pens fans shouldn't go there for at least a few weeks.

1. Niagara Falls. Get a passport. Stay on Canadian side. Take an entire day and tour winerys on Niagara-On-the-Lake. Hang on in the touristy area of Niagara Falls.
2. Hocking hills is beautifuil, hiking.
3. OhioPyple, white water rafting, swimming, natural water slide, biking.
4. Wash DC for sure. Quick drive. Take bikes, So many places, museums, to check out. Subway is easy to get around to everywhere.
5. Get a bed and breakfast and go up to see/tour Falling Water.

Fallingwater is nice. You can stay in the Melody Motor Lodge in Connellsville. Nice cheap place.

Top 3 Outdoor:

- McConnell's Mills - hiking trails, history, and camping nearby.
- Ohiopyle & Falling Water - actually may be too much for one day.
- Kinzua Dam - Boating, fishing, swimming.

If you've never spent the day in Oakland, now is a great time. Easy to park, museums, shops, great restaurants, and Schenley Park has some things to do. Downtown is also more engaging than it once was, if its been a while. Lots of weekend events for all ages.
