What to do during a free weekend in Shanghai?

I have a short weekend (Fri night to Sun morning) off in Shanghai during a work trip, and I'm looking for an activity - even a day trip to Beijing or the Great Wall. I'd appreciate suggestions and/or advice.

My company is sending a colleague and me to China in May for a few days, and we will have time off during weekend of the 20th.
We will be in Shanghai, and I'm looking for an activity - possibly an overnight day-trip - for the weekend. I was wondering if anyone here has any advice?
To be clear:
1. We finish work on Friday afternoon (Regular work day)
2. Need to be back by Sunday morning to check back into the hotel
3. Don't mind an overnight train to and from Beijing (what we currently had in mind)
4. We don't have to leave Shanghai.
We're looking for something not too expensive, maybe a few hundred dollars at most.
So do you guys have any advice?
