From Buffalo to Atlantic City

In early October I will be travelling from Buffalo to Atlantic City. Can anyone tell me what would be the most interesting city to stop in in between? Any must-see sites?

Also, can anyone tell me if there are any interesting shows in Atlantic City during this time?

Thanks

I always liked the Corning Glass museum, and downtown Corning. And I THINK it's around halfway. If you visit the museum and Borgata, you could see two Chihuly sculptures on your trip

AS noted above New York City or Philadelphia would be you best bets for finding something interesting, especially if you’re taking public transportation. If you are driving you may want to consider Binghamton.

Which shows might interest you when you visit surely depends upon what your interests are?

I drove to Niagra Falls a couple of years ago and stayed in Binghamton, NY as it seemed close to halfway. We stayed at a Fairfield Inn, it was clean and reasonably priced. It wasn't that interesting of a town but it's what we would do if we did that drive again.

Binghamton is the “Carousel Capital of the world.” And free!

Also not to be missed are Speidies! Our new word for the day;-)

Thanks everyone for your suggestions! Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be anything really to do in Atlantic City in October besides going to the comedy clubs. Oh well, we'll spend more time at the casinos.
