If you are someone who is interested in impressionist type of painting, you can take a day trip to giverny which is where Monet painted most of his paintings. Google for more info

Re: Day trip near Paris

The Palace at Versailles. It's about an hour away on the Metro, and you can easily spend the entire day there and still not see everything.

Different alternative to Versailles is Fontainebleau:

The Turkish toilets around the corner, on the same side as the eglise/chapel at the fist bar, are an interesting cultural experiment as well.
