Pennsylvania is very diverse stretching from the Northeast out to the Mid-West. I've spent most of my time around the Philadelphia are which has great cultural and historical significance. I've also been to the Amish country and the mountains. There is a lot to see in PA.Recommended for:

Pennsylvania is an important state in the history of the United States, as a number of treaties, trades, and assemblies were conducted here. The Founding Fathers met in one of Pennyslvania's most significant cities, Philadelphia, to sign the Declaration of Independence - a pivotal piece of literature in America's history.

I'm putting in a vote for I-80. Keep in mind, along both of these routes, at some point you will have to go through the boring parts of the US. If you've never been to Chicago, I-80 goes right through it. If you're a thrill seeker, in Ohio, catch 4 to Sandusky to see Cedar Point Amusement Park. Then continue on I-90 to Cleveland to see the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. From Cleveland catch I-77 to I-80 and veer onto I-76 near Youngstown to take you through southern Pennsylvania. This way, you'll see the major attractions. You'll have to go on the outskirts of Pittsburgh - don't get me wrong, there are some cool spots to it. But, when you get to Harrisburg, head to the northeastern side of it to see the chocoholic's paradise of Hershey. There's a pretty good amusement park attached to the factory, which has tours. Plus, all the street lamps are in the shape of Hershey kisses. If you're a history buff, you can also catch 15 in Harrisburg to take you to Gettysburg. Continuing on I-76, you'll go to Philadelphia where there is tons to see! Depending on how fast you want to get to New York City, you can either take I-95 out of Philly and get there faster, or take the Atlantic City Expressway to, you guessed it, Atlantic City, and then follow the Garden State Parkway north along the Jersey Shore. Take the Jersey Shore route and you'll see where they've filmed MTV's Spring Break and the Jersey Shore. And, the Boardwalk is classic. The Garden State Parkway will then intersect with I-95 in northern New Jersey. Take I-95 north to I-78 through Jersey City and across the Holland Tunnel into New York City. No need to tell you there's plenty to see NYC!
