Cabin fever! Cold day daytrips from NYC

Jump to last reply

I'm really tired of sitting indoors and with no real vacations coming up soon, I'm searching for ideas for daytrips from NYC suitable for cold weather (In the summer I'd be happy to find a nice lake or park and hang out for a couple of hours).

What specific suggestions do you have for a weekend day's outing (by car or public transportation) within about 50-60 miles of NYC?

Best combination would be a great lunch or brunch (fancy or funky/road food) plus an activity like a museum, unusual shopping etc)

Here's an example of a recent outing in Connecticut:
Lunch at Burgers Shakes & Fries in Greenwich, upscale home store shopping in New Canaan,finally poked around the tiny Norwalk Historical society and then had coffee and treats at the Sono Baking Company.
