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 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!

Harvard has the diverse communities of Cambridge and Somerville with Boston across the river. Yale has the large city of New Haven surrounding it but Princeton University sits on a small plateau looking down on a major watershed isolated from any urban complications. Like Yale,...More

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.
