Day trips from Manhattan without a car

Jump to last reply

I've combed through so many travel books about one-day and weekend getaways from New York City. Unfortunately, most of them require a car.

I've been to some great places without a car like Cold Spring, New York on the Hudson via Metro North Railroad. Spring Lake and Point Pleasant via New Jersey Transit. The Long Island Railroad also has some day trips.

Would love recommendations for one-day trips not more than two hours on public transportation. Love quaint towns, seaside or mountains, good restaurants and shops.

Thanks for all suggestions.
