I never get bored visiting Princeton University and its ground, so much history (founded in 1746) and always seem too little time. One can visit the art museum and also McCarter Theatre which has many good performances. I always spend some time in the university chapel, very peaceful.

Our son attends Princeton University so we spend most of our time on campus. It's beautiful and clean. Security is tight but they are friendly about it. A must see is the chapel.

Bring your walking shoes and your camera! Architecture is amazing, many photo ops through arched walkways surrounded by beautiful architure and fountains. Then take a stroll down the high street and enjoy one of the many eateries.

One of the world's best-what else can you say? The education and environment is outstanding. My son attended there and was given a top-notch education and was able to gain life-changing experiences and exposure. Just to visit is an experience as well. The art museum is worth your time as well as the restaurants and shopping around Palmer Square.
