Philadelphia on Amtrak. Liberty Bell. Independence Hall. Two of the best art museums in the world. U.S. history museum too. Very easy. Regular regional trains cover the trip in a little over 70 minutes while faster and more expensive Acela trains cover the trip in just over an hour.

Cold Spring NY on the beautiful Hudson line - Metro-North commuter train. Beautiful / stunning views as the train climbs through the Hudson Valley alongside the river. Next town up is Beacon with a great museum steps from the train station. Cold Spring is great for coffee shops and antique stores. Beacon for the museum and Poughkeepsie for Walkway Across Hudson (an old rail line high above the river that is now a walking trail).

New Haven Connecticut on Metro-North's New Haven line is home to Yale University and two museums.

Princeton NJ on NJ Transit is home to Princeton University.

Woodbury Common for great outlet shopping. Bus.

We've done both the first two things moreffmiles suggests and both were great days of sightseeing.
