The second year our daughter has attended the Princeton Women's Elite Basketball Camp. The head coach and staff do a tremendous job with this camp. Great experience for the girls and the university campus is beautiful, particularly in the spring time.

We spent an hour walking the grounds and the downtown area. The gothic architecture is amazing, and right now all the trees and plants are lush green. This is one of the most beautiful places I've visited-- I adore old buildings and history.

A longer walk around is highly recommended. Not only the famous old and lasting buildings but also lots of very well maintained flowerbeds and the rose garden in the back require appr 30 to 45 min for a walk

There is so much to see the campus. You are taken away by the historic architecture which is complimented by modern sculpture. It is a large campus so stick to the main area and allow 60 mins or so. There are plenty of maps around...More
