What type of trip you looking to do? Bear mountain has some good hikes and is not too far from NYC if that's up your alley.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Been to Mercer House (Castle) and Museum. Pretty boring unless your interested in seeing a 19th century hoarders collection of junk.

His house is completely tiled- floors, walls ceiling. In unique tiles.  But the whole thing is part of a fun, chilled relaxed day.  And the Pottery making place is IIRC somewhat interesting.

Thanks all for your suggestions.

We're a young couple looking for a day trip- meaning a full days worth, not just a local trip or outing.

Guess I'm deciding between RI (a mansion or two, cliffs walk, and a sunset cruise, BBQ dinner) or PA (Longwood gardens, something else in the vicinity, and trying out the new restaurant Citron+Rose)
