Traveling from NYC-Boston,any nice place to visit on our way

I'm traveling from New York City to Boston for the weekend. Any nice place we should visit and make a quick 24 hour detour on our way? We are 5 friends traveling together, no children, love great places to eat.

What time of year are you travelling ? Do you hAve a car?

Personally speaking, I do not think a weekend is a,lot of time in Boston. You can travel between NY City and Boston in under 4.5 hours by Amtrak or bus (Bolt Bus or Megabus are 2 companies) You don't need a car in either city.

If you really want a 24 hour detour some place else consider Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, a casino in Connecticut, if you are so inclined or Newport, Rhode Island, but none of these places are easy to negotiate without a car.

Happy Planning!
