Cooperstown to Buffalo-one night-where?

We are driving from Cooperstown to Buffalo in July with 2 teen boys. Where would be the best town to stay for one night along the way and what are the "Must See's" along the way?

Thank you!

The fingerlakes Region in the summertime is stunning. Look there.

Niagara Falls would be considered a "must see" but it is right near Buffalo, not necessarily "along the way".

I like Skaneateles and Seneca Falls.

The Geneseo/Mt. Morris area would be a good stopover if you are interested in visiting the "Grand Canyon of the East", Letchworth State Park.

Another alternative is Corning and Watkins Glen. The former has an interesting and informative glass museum and the latter has Watkins Glen State Park, one of the highlights of the state. Avoid Watkins when its race weekend (usually around the second weekend of August).

IMHO, Skaneateles and Seneca Falls are not exciting towns for teens.

Being that your sons are teens, maybe you can stay near some colleges and do some tours--upstate is full of them. Here is site that has a list of private college upstate:

Amusement parks? Darien Lake is on the way.

I suggested Skaneateles because on previous threads, OP asked for kayaking/ canoeing recommendations. You can do that in Skaneateles- ilovethefingerlakes.com/lakes/Skaneateles.htm

In my opinion, a brief stop in Seneca Falls is worth doing, just for the history.
