The National Zoo in DC is free, but would be out of your way if you're just zipping down I-95.
We have a bit of an unconventional rest stop.
Ikea. Three locations (White Marsh, College Park, Woodbridge). Easy to get to, has kid-friendly food, good place to stretch your legs and walk walk walk. Small playstations scattered through the store. When we drive to NJ, we sometimes stop at the Ikea in White Marsh for just this reason--I can stretch out my sciatic nerve and the kidlet can decompress. The changing rooms are often in decent shape, too.
Fredericksburg has lots of restaurants, both chain and otherwise. The biggest suburban sprawl labyrinth of doom is on the NW side of the I-95/VA SR 3 interchange. There are all sorts of places to eat in there. I'm fond of Baja Fresh.
Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.
