Hi, other than going into Paris, what are some good day trips from Vincennes, France using trains/buses?

We took the train to Versailles from Royal Regency. Easy enough. We booked a guided tour of the King's private apartments first thing in the morning that allowed you to enter the museum directly after the tour without waiting in line (but this was 2019). That said we still managed to exit the palace accidentally after grabbing a coffee in the cafe and our visit definitely went a bit sideways but plan B was fun. The lines to get inside were horrendous so we walked outside the grounds through the town of Versailles to get to the gardens and poked around there and the Estate of Trianon (delightful and free with the Paris Museum Pass) https://en.chateauversailles.fr/discover/estate/estate-trianon before going back to the palace to wait in line which was shorter in the afternoon than it had been before lunch. Luckily our tickets still worked and we went back in. It was a lot of walking though.

The guided tour was worth the price (10 euro each) but the entrance was almost impossible to find so allow extra time. We had allowed an extra 30 min and it took us about 20 min to find the right place. The tickets were booked through the Versailles website.

Taking the Metro is easy - different type of tickets available for tourists - https://www.ratp.fr/en/titres-et-tarifs

Following in Paris is a must - Musée du Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Jardin des Tuileries, Montmartre and Sacré-Coeur, Arc de Triomphe, and boat tour at Seine River.

You could visit Chantilly. You would need to take a bus to Gare du Nord, then the train to Chantilly.
There is also Senlis, a medieval village close to Chantilly.
