My cousin is driving cross-country next month. She's emailed me for some travel advice, but I thought I'd check with you guys to see if you had any thoughts.

They can't go more than about 400-450 miles/day since they're driving with the cat. They'll be stopping in the following cities and are looking for things to see and do. Any advice is appreciated.

Amarillo, TX, Oklahoma City, OK, St. Louis, MO, Dayton, OH and Pittsburgh, PA.

I told them about the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, the OK City Bombing memorial and botanic gardens designed by IM Pei in OK City, the Arch and visiting the Budweiser Brewery in St. Louis, and that Pittsburgh was generally awesome but didn't know of specific things to see.

Any help is appreciated.

Yeah, Arch and Budweiser are good in STL. I would also recommend they get pretzels (or pretzel dogs?) at Gus's Pretzels, which is literally right across the street from the brewery: http://www.guspretzels.com/

Also, anything in Forest Park is grand and free, particularly the Zoo and the Art Museum, but it might be a bit cold for the Zoo. There are also some neat old houses near the brewery and gus's. And, if they like Native American stuff, Cahokia Mounds right across the river is a great stop.

Didn't Inbev end all brewery tours when they bought Anheuser-Busch out?

Nope, they're still going on. A friend of mine just took a tour within the last couple of months. I'm told they mention Inbev as little as possible.
