I wanna go to school here simply for the scenery and architecture. The area around the school has plenty to offer, entertainment and food.

Stunning campus. Really impressive. We spent hours there and its impossible for us to forget those great buildings, squirrels there, food courts around and especially the pizzas 😋 btw the prices are so low that the students can easily go there every single day of the semester so dont leave princeton without stopping by a pizzaria 🙋

This visit was for adults but could've been an exciting place for children. I say that because we enjoyed the architecture, a family with children beyond the age of eight would also because it was like walking in Harry Potter's University.

Came here with my daughter and was remarkably impressed. If you go to the informational meeting prior to the campus tour it is held in the classroom in which Einstein taught. That alone makes this a must visit stop. Walking the rest of this pristine campus was just icing on the cake.

Great architecture and university town feel with wide selection of restaurants. There is also the scenic Delaware canal running past the university.

I love university campuses, and so I will stop at any chance I can get to visit them. On a recent trip through New Jersey, I was able to detour with the family to Princeton U, and found it to be everything you'd expect from such an esteemed institution. You can feel the wisdom of the ages as you wander... More
