Must see places between Pa and Wy?

Hi, this will be my first time driving across the country. I'll be driving to Yellowstone from Pittsburgh, Pa. I'm looking for input on cool places to stop along the way from anyone who's maybe done a similar trip. p.s. Scenic outdoor areas to take a good walk and stretch the legs would be of particular benefit :)See More

Sorry Brandi,

Live music in Yellowstone is someone on a piano, or a string quartet, And usually classical music. But compared to the one channel on the radio, and it's country too.

Didn't want you to get your hopes up. ;o)
