College Town

Best known as the home of Princeton University, the town of Princeton centers around the Ivy League school and its stone, vine-covered buildings.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Thu): experience rural life at Bullock Farms, get in on the family fun at Six Flags Great Adventure, and then relax in the rural setting at Howling Woods Farm. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the world behind art at Princeton University Art Museum, brush up on your military savvy at Old Barracks Museum, then walk around Grounds For Sculpture, and finally test your team's savvy at Amazing Escape Room Princeton.

On the 24th (Sat), spend a day by the water at Wildwood Boardwalk. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sea views from Cape May Lighthouse, get to know the resident critters at Cape May County Park & Zoo, enjoy the sand and surf at Cape May City Beaches, and tour the pleasant surroundings at North Wildwood Beach.
