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.

The Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh is not to be missed.

Food wise: Mineo's Pizza http://www.mineospizza.com/ and of course The O: http://pittsburgh.citysearch.com/profile/8608800/pittsburgh_pa/original_hot_dog_shops_inc.html (note: The O is kind of horribly greasy and a little terrifying and may have no value for somebody who hasn't spent time in Pittsburgh in the past. But Mineo's is great pizza regardless)

Sadly, it's the wrong time of year for Kennywood or baseball.

On the way out of Pittsburgh, there is of course Falling Water, but I don't know how feasible it is to leave the cat in the car for any stops like that (I'd guess "not very").

If they're into trains, the Horseshoe Curve is kind of cool and almost certainly on the way: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horseshoe_Curve_(Altoona,_Pennsylvania)
