What we love the most about our travels are the areas where there is an endless amount of history. History is the most important knowledge we can learn. Princeton is one of the oldest towns in New Jersey. Henry Greenland was one of the first European settlers in Princeton. The town is rich in history. While walking through Princeton, you’ll notice the architecture. English Tudor half-timbered and collegiate Gothic are throughout the town. The main road where most of the stores are located is on Nassau Street. Here you can find one of our favorite record stores, Princeton Record Exchange. Thousands of reasonable priced records from old to new; movies, cassettes, cds and much more. You can spend hours in here. Triumph Brewery is also located on Nassau Street. This brewery is different than most, it’s also a restaurant where fish and burgers make their appearance on the appetizing menu, everything is always delicious. Pj's Pancake House has many breakfast options available as well as lunch and dinner. All of the syrups are homemade which are served in tiny tinctures. Princeton offers a few coffee locations including Starbucks. If you're looking for more of a local coffee taste, Small World Coffee is your alarm clock. The aura of coffee beans can be smelled through out the shop. Art shows are held here as well. Our favorite sight was built in 1746, the University of Princeton. Walking on the grounds of the university feels similar to Hogwarts from the Harry Potter franchise. There’s an art museum on campus where they have artwork from different cultures. American, Asian, Ancient Byzantine and Islamic art, and much more. We loved the current temporary exhibition, still Life and portraits, We always find ourselves in Princeton, come say hi when when we cross trails!
