Hit a snag in trip plan- IDEAS?

Planning a trip from Indy to Dayton OH for the Air Force Museum then to KY and Tenn. No set schedule. From Dayton we have no idea what we want to see or do on the way down. Ideas?

BTW, how do most of you plan sightseeing on trips with ne schedule? What do you do to find things of interest?

We like to lake fish but haven't found a way to zero in on fishing spots yet as we travel.

The Columbus zoo is one of the top 10 in the US. Jackson Center is where all Airstreams are made. The factory tour is rated one of the 10 beat in the US. I have be there three times over the years and they do a great job of explaining why their trailers are so expensive. Fort Recovery tour if you are into American history.

Near the AF Museum, you might want to go to Carrillon Park which has a great automon show and lots of Wright Brothers stuff. If you go south on 75, Cincy has a great Aquarium and nice Zoo. Near Lexinton the Horse park is good a little south is Beera and the Visitor center is worth a stop. In Tn just north of Knoxville the Appilatian Museum is super, then of corse Dolly Wood and the Smokies.

Bourbon Trail, in KY is interesting.

KY and TN have some amazing caves, some are more serious hikes, some are very easy.

All states have some form of website to promote their attractions. Just Google "Tourism" for a respective state, and you will get something like this: Kentucky Tourism - State of Kentucky - Visit Kentucky, Official Site
