The ivy league campus is ideal for a stroll, where some interesting buildings may be visited.
A classic magnificent campus in the heart of a bustling & charming historic town that maintains centuries of tradition, alongside state of the art libraries, museums, facilities & a magnificent chapel. An obviously diversified student population of women & men enhances the ambiance, as well as the appeal for generations to come.

I have visited the park many a time, be it for a morning walk, or to cheer contestants or to watch a concert or just to watch the deers. It is a beautul park with playgrounds, icerinks, tennis courts, softball and football courts, paddling etc. They even have a cricket pitch. Love to watch the joggers, bicyclers and how could I forget the pet park.

This temple is meant for everyone and is worth a tour through its inner sanctum. I’ve been there twice with friends and relatives and visitors. Everyone marvels at the beauty and detail of workmanship.

What an interesting, lovely spot: we visited with the "wild residents" both inside the space, & outside on a walk (snakes, birds, frogs, turtles & butterflies). Also bought honey/beeswax soap - the boutique has lots of fun gifts to choose from. A great stop for a breath of fresh air & family learning visit.

The perfect day trip! Grounds For Sculpture (GFS), located in Hamilton, New Jersey (midway between Philadelphia and New York), is a forty-two acre not-for-profit sculpture park and arboretum founded by Seward Johnson. Its collection features more than 270 contemporary sculptures by renowned and emerging artists. Exhibitions change seasonally in five indoor galleries. With rich educational offerings, a robust schedule of performing arts, and fun family events, the park is open year-round. Shopping and dining options complement every visit. Members receive free admission year-round plus a host of other benefits. For hours, admission prices, membership information, and a calendar of events, visit us online.
Not sure how I never heard of this place but I've been twice now and looking forward to going back. Amazing grounds and gardens and interesting sculpture everywhere you turn. Both times we started by going to Ratt's Restaurant and then actually driving around to the visitors center. I've been in summer and spring and now looking forward to a fall visit. This would be difficult for someone with limited mobility or anyone in a wheelchair due to spots with uneven terrain so call ahead to reserve a guide / golf cart tour. For everyone else -- as large as the grounds are - you're walking at your speed with plenty of places to take breaks - including a few snack locations throughout the park. We've never had alot of luck following the maps but you really don't need them - and all the sculptures are well labeled.

A public golf course, with green fees of only $30.
I would not recommend this golf course. While the course itself is pretty nice, the staff is not. I went on a Saturday in July with a foursome that was a little new to golf. Naturally, we were playing a little bit slowly; however, we didn't slow down the group behind us at all and we offered to let them pass if they'd like. As we entered the back 9, one of the staff came up to us and told us we were playing very slowly. We knew we were, and we told him that we were a little new to golf. His response was appalling: "This is a county course, and we have standards here. If you are having a tough time out there, then feel free to take up bowling instead." Instead of playing the back nine under pressure, we just played the front nine twice and got out of there. I won't be going back.

The Princeton University Art Museum is one of the nation's finest art museums, housing collections of over 72 ,000 works of art spanning 5,000 years of world history and all the world's major cultures. The Museum also presents special exhibitions and educational programs throughout the year. Admission is free.
The Art Museum on the Princeton University campus is small but when it comes to the masterpieces on exhibit, the museum is on par with New York’s Metropolitan. There are great works by Picasso, Braque, Cezanne, American artists like Remington, Gilbert Stuart, Stuart Davis and Georgia O’Keefe. And best of all it’s Free. There are great restaurants and shoppes just a few yards away. So visit the Art Museum and the classy town of Princeton.

I'm not sure I would recommend the public library as a tourist destination per se, but as a local, it's one of the best public libraries to have in the community. For anyone passing through the town looking for a quiet place to wander and sit, or to work remotely, the library is ideal.
Overall, the collection is rather extensive, and the librarians are incredibly helpful. Some of the physical collection was moved off site in a recent renovation to make way for ample sitting and working space, particularly on the second floor. While water is allowed throughout the building, the first floor has a small cafe (run by the same restaurant company as Terramomo) for a quick snack or sandwich. And if you have kids, the third floor's children's collection often has story time and spaces for the kiddos to find a read and play.
It's not exactly a destination, but a nice place for the family or as a quiet place to read/work.

This building is called a chapel, which implies something cozy. Instead, it has the size and grandeur of a major cathedral--gothic style. Great for quiet prayer or contemplation. You can also book a wedding too.

The McCarter Theater Center is actually two theaters: the larger 1100 seat McCarter and the 373 seat Berlind Theater. I have only attended the larger auditorium where I have seen mostly concerts. The theater is excellent. The seats are raked so that heads of folks in front of you are generally not a significant problem. The legroom is okay (and I am 6'2") and the amenities are quite good. Restrooms require walking down stairs, though there are wheelchair accessible restrooms on the main level. There is a bar area on the main level which is lined by long windows creating a very comfortable space during intermissions. The architecture combines old and new features and while not opulently appointed is frankly as nice and comfortable a theatre as one might attend anywhere. Moreover, the theater is within easy walking distance of the Princeton Dinky train station which is a five minute ride from Princeton Junction on NJ Transit's Northeast Corridor line.
