What are some good places to vacation with a 5 year old in the Northeast?

I am trying to plan an inexpensive family vacation for this summer. We live in Rhode Island so I am looking for somewhere in the Northeast we can drive to within a day or so. Any suggestions?

    Vermont is a beautiful state to visit, there's farms orchards, museums, parks, ski resorts that also have things to do in spring and summer.

      I don't know how far it is from you, but have you thought of Niagra?? Absolutely gorgeous, and if you cross over into Toronto, Canada there's lots of cool stuff to do!
