Area of outstanding natural beauty there and back in a day?

Hi Guys. I was hoping to do a day trip to Niagara Falls but it's much further than I thought (9.5 hrs?) so where else is there from NYC please by bus or coach that is really gorgeous in terms of beautiful landscape? I heard there's the metro north trains upstate..any recommendations please? Anywhere else? I like beaches. How about Jamaica Bay or far down Long Island? I like mountains too, waterfalls. Something gorgeous and a contrast to the city would be great. Thank you

Fly to Buffalo for Niagara Falls.

Take Metro-North to Poughkeepsie and do the Walkway Over the Hudson River. Have lunch in Cold Spring. Visit the art museum in Beacon NY. Lots you can do.

They're one train stop apart - yes.

Metro-North schedules can be found at www.mta.info Click on Metro-North and then East of Hudson. You want the Hudson Line train schedule.
