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.
You've added Roebling Museum, Hopewell Valley Vineyards, Allaire State Park, and other attractions to your itinerary. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pennsbury Manor and Trinity Church. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Princeton Cemetery and Morven Museum and Garden. Get out of town with these interesting Princeton side-trips: Cream Ridge Winery (in Cream Ridge), The Original Ben Franklin 5 & 10 Store (in Lavallette) and Brick (Windward Beach Park & Brick Beach 1). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Snipes Farm & Education Center, sample the tasty concoctions at River Horse Brewing Company, examine the collection at William Trent House Museum, and ponder the world of politics at Drumthwacket.
