If you like older buildings, Providence and Newport are with 6 hours. You should be able to walk along the Bay (blustery in April, but ok, look at Colonial and Gilded Age mansions, eat some good food, and lay low at a B&B somewhere.

Old Montreal. Seven hours drive, get your AirBNB on, eat the best poutine and smoked meat in the world.

Looks like you live in central jersey... as a Philly girl, I say go to Philly, stay at a cheap hotel on the edge of the city, and spend your money barhopping. Depends on what your idea of fun is, though.

If you're doing the Philly thing, the Alexander Inn is a cool, clean, cheap spot in Philly that I enjoyed. In a hip area, 'the gayborhood,' it's worth looking into.

Otherwise, how about:
-funky, arty Providence, RI?
-quaint Stowe, VT on the tail-end of ski season / start of the hiking season?
-Portsmouth, NH and Portland, ME for a long weekend loop?
-relaxing western CT, Philip Roth country?
-Cape Cod, generally?
-Niagara Falls?
-Or pts south?
