Is it a bad idea for my terminally ill grandmother to go to the USA for 48hrs?

My dad and I are thinking of taking my 85yr old grandmother on a road trip. She was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer last Thursday and decided on Friday that she doesn't want to go through treatment. She does, however, want to see her sister, sister's kids and grandkids one last time. However, they live 1,300KM away in a mid-sized Mid-West city in the States while we're in Toronto. We'd like to make this visit happen for grandma, recognize all the risks inherent in trying to do so, and would like to hear the stories/experiences of anyone who has done anything similar. Relevant details below the fold. Thank you. [more inside]

What to do between Toronto and Boston?

Please suggest places to see, things to do, places to stop/stay overnight, and routes to take for a five day car trip between Toronto and Boston? It should only be about 10 hours of direct driving, so plenty of time to stop and visit. Are there any really cool things I've never heard of and shouldn't miss? (Niagara Falls and Montreal are possibilities, but I've already heard of them :) Thank you!

Attractions between Cleveland and Milwaukee?

Driving between Cleveland and Milwaukee with a day to spare; any ideas about interesting things to see? Not that interested in Cedar Point. Leaving the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to go to Alpine Valley Music Theater for Pearl Jam's 20 Anniversary concert, if that context will help. Like national parks along with man made attractions.

Road Trip Filter: Ithaca, Buffalo, Niagara Falls

I am going on a road trip next week that will include Ithaca, Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and points in between. I'd love some suggestions of fun, amazing, quirky, or air conditioned things to do along the way. We'll be coordinating rest stops so any 'in between' suggestions would be especially appreciated. Moderately physically active OK, strenuous not so much. Trip includes very small children.

Help my dad have a good time in Wichita, KS?

Hey folks that live in or are familiar with Wichita, KS: my 64-year-old dad and his buddy need a hand. They're going to see Bela Fleck at the Orpheum next month and would love a hotel recommendation for that night. The ideal would be driving in and parking at the hotel and not getting back in the car until they head back home. Is this doable for a reasonable price? [more inside]

Roadtrip from Miami: to GA or NC (or none)?

I moved to US and Florida (Miami) recently and I am leaving this weekend (Friday after work, so 7PM-ish) for a small roadtrip. We are planning to sleep somewhere along the road (probably on a motel), staying saturday night somewhere nice, and returning on sunday. I will be traveling with my wife and we love getting to know different places, small towns, good food and some shopping too. We'd love to have an interesting road to drive, but I guess my options are either I-75 or I-95, right? So here's my question: between somewhere in GA (maybe even getting to Atlanta?) and somewhere in NC (any advice is welcome), and something else, what would you pick? Why?

Interesting War Museums or Memorials?

A friend's 16 year old son has picked up an interest in history, particularly war memorials. She'd like to take him on a trip over spring break to encourage him but is lacking choices other than Civil War sites in VA/MD and the Pearl Harbor Memorial, both of which they've visited before. Places in the United States are preferable but she'd consider other English-speaking countries (she doesn't want to hire a tour guide). Where can they go to get a real sense of history and blow this teenager's mind?

I suspect this trip would be much easier if we were going to New Mexico instead.

I'm heading to Arizona for 3-4 days of unfettered roaming with my boyfriend. We are a strange pair of humans, and up for anything that sounds interesting. We're renting a car, and don't mind driving ridiculous distances for a small payoff. We'll need to find 3 places to sleep during the course of this little trip, as well. Any ideas, the more outlandish the better? We almost never get to travel together, so here's hoping for some strange fun if we can get it! [more inside]
