Daytime in Princeton

The principal attraction of the town is, of course, its namesake university. Wander through the campus, to see some of the university’s art and historic buildings, such as Nassau Hall, which is the oldest on campus and a national landmark. Stroll past the Eating Clubs, as well, where F. Scott Fitzgerald loved to cavort. (And if you have a friend who attends Princeton, get them to bring you to one of the eating club events. That’s pretty much the only way you’ll see inside the gorgeously-extravagant old buildings.) Nearby McCarter Theatre has a wealth of programming and shows; check a schedule ahead of time and try to grab tickets for a show.

Otherwise, the best way to see Princeton is to stroll the streets. The downtown area is home to a host of restaurants, cafés and stores (some chain, others not), as well as some homes. Be sure to spend time around Palmer Square and Nassau Street, as well as on other nostalgic small streets in the area.
