Help plan a tour around the U.S.A. for my great mom!

One of my mother's dreams is to take a road-trip through all the states that run along the border of the U.S. I could use some suggestions for sight-seeing and other practical advice to help make this dream a reality for my amazing mom!
Landmarks, places of interest (1-2 per state)
First, my mom is an extremely intelligent and well-learned librarian. She is fascinated by history, murder mysteries, haunted houses, and artwork. She would probably prefer to visit the less touristy areas of a state and find somewhere with character and charm. Though she still would love to visit the most famous landmarks. The catch is that she can't take a great deal of time off work (maybe 1-2 months?) so she can't really soak in anything. She's happy just touring the country.
Things I could really use are suggestions for:
Estimates of time and cost
Food styles per state
Anything else you can think of. What would *you* do on such a trip?
I really appreciate any advice you can give. I think it would help her decide to go for it if someone were helping lay the groundwork. Thank you!
