New England weekend trip suggestions with 3-month old

My husband and I are planning a weekend trip somewhere in New England (within ~4 hours drive from NYC). We are taking our 3-month old son, so will not be able to enjoy outdoorsy activities, but looking for a place that has good restaurants, stroller-friendly sightseeing, or nice drives. We loved Stowe VT but it is too far for a short trip, so maybe something similar? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated - thanks!

Newport RI ? Lots of parks and beaches and strolling available. Amazing historical architecture and amazing olde dame trees from Olmstead's regime. Beautiful gardens, ample fecilities and some good restaurants.

The Berkshires would be a nice choice. Stay someplace in Stockbridge or Great Barrington. Nice restaurants. Several easy, small museums or historic homes, antique stores.

And its a very easy drive from New York. Plus if you go up the Taconic its a very pretty drive.
