Is there such a thing...?

In a week I will be driving from Massachusetts to Colorado.

Is there any online mapping websites that I can plug my route into that will give suggestions of places to see along my route?

I know I will probably be following Rte 70 the Ohio to Colorado leg and I am hoping it is at least a little more exciting than the last time I crossed the country following 80 the entire way.

So does anybody know something online I can use, or do any of you have suggestions where I should see along my trip?

We used this successfully last summer during a road trip:

http://www.roadsideamerica.com/location

It doesn't do point-to-point directions, but it does give a google map listing attractions by state.

Sorry, I meant boring in general. I wasn't referring to your chosen route.

lol, it's ok.

Actually 80 wasn't all that bad. I just figured 70 will be a bit different. I like road trips...
