Nestled in a quaint small town environment with lots of nice shops and nature areas nearby. If you're planning a college road trip to explore the options, this is well worth the visit.

We walked and walked and walked to tour the campus. Such a beautiful setting and dominates the town of Princeton, NJ. We took a city tour that provided us information on the University. We got an opportunity to get inside the Chapel too. And took a photo with the Princeton Tigers that were visible all over the campus.

Not enough seating for everyone. There are bathrooms for the crowd and the arena next door is open for food. There is a 50 meter pool and good scoreboards. Get here early to get a seat in the stands.
