We spent time just walking around the campus. It was beautiful and so much architecture to see. Everyone was friendly and we enjoyed the downtown portion with shops and restaurants. A nice stop to see a part of Ivy League history.

We walked around the Princeton University campus on a gorgeous day. The weather was just perfect with clear blue skies. Can't believe Albert Einstein was here.

This Campus seems to have so much History with it. Being from the Midwest, I think my daughter could adapt easily to the Campus/Town Culture. The undergrads seem to be fully engaged in their work/studies. I hope it is their passion to be engaged and...More

This is the most beautiful campus filled with so much history. Our tour guide was great and told us all about the history as well as about the university. I'd recommend the tour even if you don't have kids aspiring to go here!

Foot is better option. There is a shuttle bus to take you around and to the parking lot. How this helps. Enjoy.

Check the website - search tours and information sessions then click on "current schedule" Looks like they have 2 tours on remaining Sundays in August at 1 pm and 3:30 pm, but check the website to be sure.
