What interesting things should we stop at, or what interesting places should we stay at on the course of our roadtrip from Columbus, Ohio to Stockbridge, Massachusetts in mid-August?

I am not generally one for long periods of time in the car; however, I've booked a vacation for the ladyfriend and I, and we're driving in an effort to save some funds for super fancy massages and such once we reach our destination.
The drive is roughly 11 hours before stops, so we're probably going to stay overnight each way, and would like to find some interesting things to do or see and/or some interesting places to stay (B&Bs, quirky hotels, etc.) on the way to or fro so that we don't go insane from that much car time.
Our routes are somewhat flexible, so will follow either I80 or I90 through Pennsylvania, or I86 through New York, depending on which offers the most scenic or interesting options.
Interests which may or may not be relevant: me: knitting, crafty stuff, seafood; her: comics, superhero stuff; both of us: roller derby, vegetarian food, historical sites, art.
Websites which could help in finding this stuff out would be helpful too -- I found the basic roadside attraction ones, but it's difficult to parse what's actually going out of your way for from most of those.
