Good place to stop while driving from NY to Cleveland, Ohio

We have a full day of driving from NY to Cleveland, and would like to "break" a drive with some 2-3 hour stop. Looking for something interesting see/do with the kids (8 & 13 years old). Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance!

Kind Regards

My kids liked Clyde Peeling's Reptiland, which is just a little bit off of I-80:

State College is another possibility. It's a fun town to walk around in for an afternoon. We were just there last week and ate downtown, wandered around the shops, and visited the campus with our kids, 13 and 7.

Enjoy your planning! Do make sure that you bring along some good car snacks...there are some long stretches on 80!

Thanks a lot! The age of your kids is very close, so I especially appreciate the advice!

Penns Cave (America's only all-water cavern) & Wildlife Park in Centre Hall might be another good stop.

It depends on whether you're locked in to I80. I'd personally recommend I86. There will be far less traffic and in my eyes it's a far more scenic drive. If you take this route, you potentially could stop off at Soaring Attractions in Elmira or Corning Museum of Glass in Corning. It's a lot closer to Cleveland, but Presque Isle State Park in Erie is a gem offering some of the best beaches in America.
