Road trip NY - West Virginia - Kentucky - Missouri - Kansas - Colorado

We are looking for places to see and stay along this path. Parks, mountains, valleys, towns, small museums, and of course odd-ball things.

Door County recommendations in July

My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon in Door County 10 years ago. In July, we're taking our 7 and 6 year old kids (plus my parents, brother, sister in law, and their few months old kid) up there to show them the sights. We have some spots in mind like Al Johnson's, cherry picking, and a fish boil that we fondly remember, but what would be your suggestions for either family friendly things or new things from the last 10 years? (Admittedly I'm sure we will also have kid free time, so other suggestions are appreciated.)

Washington Island Ferry jingle

If you grew up in Wisconsin in the '90s-'00s, can you confirm for me that there was a jingle (probably on TV? or the radio?) about the Washington Island ferry? Specifically: "Take a magical ride to a magical place -- the Washington Island Ferry!" Some of my friends remember it, some don't, and wildly we can't find any evidence of it on the Google. Help us out? [more inside]

Need local knowledge for two 50-something totally chill friends convening in Madison WI over Oct 15-17. Where to stay? We'd love to share a place on or walkable to water, bonus if somewhat central and able to access some great places on foot, but not a must. [more inside]

Desperately seeking a diversion

Our favorite dog ever, Monty, just crossed over the Rainbow Bridge and there is a huge achy hole in our lives. Everywhere we turn in our house, we're smacked by a memory. We need to get out of town and experience things that don't remind us of the dog we'll never see again. So, it's off to the Madison (WI) art fair next weekend and then... well, this is where I need your ideas. [more inside]

Going Out to the Ball Game . . . in Milwaukee

So, in a few weeks we are flying from Seattle to Chicago, then driving to Milwaukee, to attend a ball game with friends at the Brewers ball park. We've never been to Milwaukee. It's a short trip -- just for the weekend. Any suggestions from the Hive Mind on where to stay and eat and what to do besides going to our scheduled game?
