Hidden Gem: Art museum

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.

We love the architecture in the school and small town atmosphere. The restaurants around campus are great (although it is a little pricy)

The university parc is beautiful and a perfect place to take a walk, either alone or with a friend/friends. In autumn the squirrels run around gathering food for the winter, which is quite entertaining to watch. The different buildings make the walk inspiring and give a good variation to look at. The atmosphere is cozy and chilled out.

We went on an official tour as my son is considering applying. The campus is stunning and easily walkable. The small downtown area is charming and easily accessible before or afterwards.

One of the things my husband and I like to do is to visit the campus of noteworthy colleges in the towns or close to where we are visiting, and we have literally been everywhere. The architecture at Princeton blew us away. We aren't easily impressed, but this was absolutely stunning. There aren't enough superlatives to describe it. We coupled... More

Don't miss the tour, it will take you around the different buildings. The Museum is worth a visit. You can eat in the student cafeteria

So close to campus! No late night food service. I didn't pay for internet but it worked in my room. Parking garage is close by so you don;t have to drive to Princton.

If you are making a day trip to Princeton U and the town, plan on being there all day and try to get there early morning. Start the day with a visit to the university, stroll everywhere there and make sure to go into the cathedral on campus (where we were treated to organ music that combined with the setting... More

Beautiful University that lives up to it's reputation. We attended a Football Camp and was very impressed with the staff. The location is convenient to all highways and the location is beautiful.
