When DD2 was born my In-laws came out to visit. They took DD1 (almost 3 at the time)  for a ride on the commuter rail and she nearly blew a gasket she was so excited!  They only went maybe 3 stops, got off and got an ice cream and then rode the train home again.  

 

Your location says central Ma, so you might be able to take her for a ride on the Worcester or Fitchburg lines and it would only be the cost of your ticket and parking.  A little research would find a cute diner or restaurant for lunch at a nearby stop.

 

DD1 is almost 5 now and the ILs have continued to take her on the train when they come out to visit. She still loves it and has great stories :)

Aww.. Too bad you didn't post this sooner.  Disney Princess on Ice are at the DCU center in Worcester this weekend.  There are still tickets available for the 2 shows tomorrow (Sun) but it would be really short notice.  That would have been a great gift and something fun to do together!

 

Maybe you could take her to a kids movie?  I know there is a theater near me that does kids showings (it's not as dark, and the volume isn't as loud as a regular movie)

I am also a fan of experiential gifts for little ones.  For my DD's third bday we planned to take her to an observation deck in a skyscraper in our city and then to a winter holiday parade (her bday is in Dec).  However, our plans were thwarted by 17 inches of snow.  :)
