Road trip from Kansas City to Houston - activity suggestions

My boyfriend and I are making a road trip from Kansas City to Houston, TX, in mid-May. We like to explore small towns, eat at local diners, take tours, etc. What are your recommendations? We'll take either I-45 or I-35, and probably use some side-roads.
