Route to princeton for a family visit
Princeton is a charming university town in New Jersey. Through this tour you will not only explore this prestigious campus as an architectural gem, but you will also learn a little more about the workings of the university system and its little secrets (Clubs, Mascots, Graduation Ceremony, fraternities, undergraduate/graduate...).
Then, once on the other side of the FitzRandolph gate (official entrance to the Princeton campus) you will have the opportunity to visit the other part of the city. First, you will discover the rich architectural heritage of Princeton with its colonial-era buildings and Victorian houses. You will then visit the former African-American quarter. Finally, through a few monuments, you will learn that Princeton was home to famous inhabitants and that the city was the seat of a decisive battle in the War of Independence.
