You get to see a lot of Victorian style architecture. Although you will most likely not be able to explore any of the buildings from inside its a great place to walk around and enjoy the architectural marvel. Recommend time of the year is fall especially if you are driving from NY or upstate NJ.
Truly an iconic Ivy League university! The moment you enter the gates you can feel the 300 year history of this legendary university. The time capsules for each batch are a beautiful tradition and placed in a very aesthetics manner. The town of Princeton around the university is a great place to walk around among a truly accomplished crowd of people!
