Hello! You will see a great deal of the Pennsylvania countryside, and June is a lovely time to travel.
You will be going close to some of the access points for the Allegheny National Forest in the northern part of the state. We loved Cook Forest State Park and the surrounding area. It is a tiny island of tourism with some great little inns. (Some of Pennsylvania's remaining stands of old-growth forest are in the area) It is a little to the west of Mapquest's suggested route, but would be a good choice if you like the outdoors. The Gateway Lodege had great breakfasts!
You might also enjoy State College, home to Penn State. It has a fun downtown area and plenty of shops, hotels, and restaurants. This is a little to the east of the suggested route. If you visited State College, it would make sense to continue east to Harrisburg, and then south along US 15 to DC. This would take you by Gettysburg, another nice stop.
The Pennsylvania tourism website is pretty informative. You can find state parks by searching for PA DCNR.
Thanks for all the suggestions. Will check them out.
