Day train trip from Hertogenbosch, Netherlands

My wife and I will be in Hertogenbosch for fournights in early November. We are traveling with another couple who are friends of ours and have family in the area. Although we will be partaking in some of the family visits and events with our friends, we would like to break off for one full day and take a day trip by train to another town in the area. We have been to Amsterdam before, so this time around we have no need to revisit. We are thinking of a smaller town somewhere within an hour and a half or so by train.

Any and all suggestions appreciated!

Maastricht perhaps? that is 90 minutes away.
Breda is only half an hour away from Den Bosch ('s Hertogenbosch) as is Utrecht.
Any would be an interesting day trip.

Thanks for the quick reply and suggestions. I initially zeroed in on Utrecht because of how close it was, but am open to other suggestions as well.

Utrecht is easy from Den Bosch, and so is Nijmegen. Both are great options, Nijmegen a little more so. Nijmegen and Arnhem both could also be a great daytrip

We spent 3 nights in Den Bosch a few years ago to see the Hieronymous Bosch exhibit and absolutely loved the town. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the day trips suggested above. Have fun!

There are so many options. Maybe Maastricht, Nijmegen, Breda or even Antwerpen. If you like to be a true tourist, you could even visit Kinderdijk.
