New York City to where? We have multiple four-day weekends coming up and some wanderlust. What do you recommend?

My lovely boyfriend Griphus
and I would like to skip town for a couple long weekends this fall. We are looking for the hivemind to give us some ideas!
Our budget is pretty small and we don’t have a car- so it’s going to have to be on public transportation. We like “limited nature”- like hiking in a park, but no camping. We love city life and have nothing against touristy things. Griphus likes anything haunted and I love anything history-related. Science is also a big-love.
We don’t want to spend more than four hours traveling each way. We were thinking DC or Philadelphia for one weekend, and maybe a smaller town nearby for another? What have been your favorite close-to-new-york getaways?
