There are a number of places to visit from Mexico City on a day-trip, since it is in a Central location of transportation. Besides driving or taking a conducted tour, you could also bus it, from one of Mexico City's bus stations. Some of them do deserve an overnight visit though.

The beautiful silver town of Taxco is about 150 minutes from the Southern Bus Station in Mexico City (fare is MXN105 one way). Besides visiting the church on the main square and some of the museums, it is great to just wander around the town.

Where the Men Became Gods, or so the Aztecs thought. This UNESCO Heritage site is about a hour outside Mexico City. There are daily tours to this site (please bring comfortable walking shoes as there is loads of walking and climbing), or you could take a bus from Autobuses del Norte costing about MXN 28 one-way.

The Pyramids of the Sun and Moon are spectacular and will take your breath away. Else, the climb up one or both of them will! Note that the Temple of the Feathered Serpent is currently closed for restoration.
