While visiting Philadelphia we took a drive to view Princeton and were not disappointed. It is a beautiful campus full of history and charm. The town itself is charming and fun to explore.

The buildings are beautiful. It is an open campus and you can enter most any building. The grounds are kept up. You probably need a map to get around

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.
