The paradigm of a perfect campus

Absolutely beautiful in almost any season, but fall and spring are spectacular. A great walking experience for visitors, families, and lovers.

Princeton is one of the world's premier universities, and the campus looks the part. Bring your camera or your sketch book, because there's plenty to see and remember. I've been there in all seasons, and there's really no bad time to pay a visit. Once you've strolled the campus, cross Nassau Street to dine and shop on Palmer Square. This... More

It's a small but excellent university museum. However check out the closing times. The floor mosaics from Antioch from today's Turkey are superb.

Stunning architecture beginning in 1684 to present day styles. Iconic. We enjoyed visiting the art museum to see highlights. Very interesting photography exhibition highlighting 3 urban city problems (NYC,LA & Chicago) and need for renovation circa 1960-1980.

One of the most prestigous universities in the whole world is located in NJ and deserves a visit every season. Princeton University has amazing architecture, both classic and contemporary, which needs to be seen on a walking tour of the campus. Start at Nassau Street and head down the hill towards Carnegie Lake, zig zagging amongst the many buildings. Look... More

The Princeton Art Museum is a hidden gem with Monets and Van Goghs, as well as pre-Columbian artifacts. I took my high school students while studying The Odyssey. Great place.
