We enjoyed touring the campus. The buildings are beautiful, the town centric location a plus and of course the University has so much to offer...

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

This campus is beautiful. Even if you are not looking at colleges, it is well worth a visit to view the architecture and learn the history of the school.

This is a great looking campus to visit, beautiful architecture and lots of science history here. Also, visit Arts Museum and surrounding streets for a good dining or light shopping. Or you can rent a bike or a kayak on the canal and enjoy the nature right outside the campus. I would definitely say this place is a must visit... More

If your into history or photography Princeton University is must see. I only had about an hour before I had to get to the airport but it was worth it. There was some road construction in the area that made maneuvering and parking a little tricky.

Just a beautiful place to walk around. All the buildings look like renaissance cathedrals. There are many huge trees for shade populated by very friendly squirrels. And just on the other side of Nassau street from the cute little town of Princeton!
