Mystic, Connecticut has become a popular tourist attraction for its coastal New England charm and history located only two hours away from NYC. The two most popular activities in Mystic are the Seaport Museum and Aquarium. I don't know about you, but I love aquariums, especially those that have tiny little seahorses. If you're looking to get more in touch with nature, make sure to visit Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center.

Saratoga Springs is known for its Saratoga Race Course, horses, mineral springs and entertainment offerings. Make sure to visit Diamond Club Restaurant and Thirsty Owl Bistro to enjoy some of the best food the town has to offer. 

5. Newport, RI

Rhode Island is a slightly longer drive from NYC, but it's definitely worth visiting for its beaches, breweries, farms and historical landmarks. If you take the trip, I definitely suggest splurging on a waterfront hotel to enjoy the picturesque views and crystal clear water.
