Driving from Wellesley, MA to NY,NY on I84 - need stops along the way

Primrosefaerie | Jun 26, 201209:27 AM     10

Am driving with my dog from Wellesley MA to NY, NY on I84 route which is a fairly long journey and need to be able to stop along the way to eat, refresh and walk dog. Want to find a cute, safe, little town to stop off - close to freeway, to get a nice lunch, walk around a park or nice suburban block - don't want to have to drive 10 miles from freeway.
Looking for two different things - one idea would be to stop 1/3 way down somewhere and then 2/3 way down...
Second idea would be to just stop halfway from Wellesley to NY ...
Could anyone be a 'dear kindy' (as my Mom would say) and suggest any places to stop, eat and do all of the above. Def wld like a quaint, pretty and safe place to stop ...
Thanks so much for the help...
Doing this trip on Thurs - June 28
