    Princeton University Store
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    Those of us who graduated from solidly mediocre universities have for years been on the receiving end of that half-hearted compliment, “that’s a really good school.” If that sounds wearily familiar, you may want to pick up some Princeton University gear so that the next time you meet someone new, you can engage in a little white lie about your alma mater. Worst-case scenario, you’ll hear something like, “Oh, you were at Princeton in ’96? Me too. What eating club did you belong to?” If that should happen, don’t panic. Just say something about how you found that particular social scene a little too elitist.

    Labyrinth Books
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    There were many dismayed bibliophiles around here when Micawber Books closed a few years ago. Luckily, this famous university town didn’t have to go long without a stellar independent bookstore to bolster its reputation. Labyrinth Books on Nassau Street carries on in the tradition of its predecessor by offering customers a well-curated selection of titles in all major categories. Pick up the latest cerebral hemorrhage-inducing work by Terry Eagleton, cross the street, and kick back somewhere on the leafy Ivy League campus to feel good about yourself.

    Tico's Eatery & Juice Bar
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    The blustery Northeast can be pretty dire during the colder months, when you may want to brighten your spirits with a tropical juice infusion at this Princeton oasis. Then again, Tico’s Eatery and Juice Bar is also a pretty ideal destination for the dog days of August when you can barely muster the energy to peel an orange, let alone wrench the seed out of a mango. Whatever the season (or degree of laziness), this healthy daytime spot on Witherspoon St. is going to impress with its freshly squeezed juices, smoothies and light snacks. Student discount available. Closed Sundays.

    The Bent Spoon
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    Few, if any, foodie destinations in Princeton have gotten as much press as The Bent Spoon, a homemade ice cream shop and “good ingredient” bakery on Palmer Square. The attention is well-deserved, as anyone who samples the creamy mascarpone gelato or blood-orange sorbet will readily attest. If you’re one of those people who don’t go for ice cream—I’m told that you do exist—The Bent Spoon also sells cookies and cupcakes made from organic, usually local ingredients.

    Blue Point Grill
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    As a coastal state, New Jersey has always been known for top-of-line fresh seafood and Princeton is no exception. One of the best places to sample the wares is Blue Point Grill, located on Nassau St. just across from the eastern edge of campus. Blue Point is one of several ventures by the JM Group, the Princeton restaurateur committed to regionally sourced products. Another JM locale is right new door, the Nassau Street Seafood and Produce Co., where you can also grab a quick bite or pick up some fresh tuna steaks to chef up at home. As of this writing, Blue Point Grill is BYOB, so if you’re the kind of person who can’t eat oysters without a crisp Sauvignon Blanc, you’d better come prepared.

    Alchemist & Barrister
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    Skeptics who claim that old-fashioned watering holes shouldn’t double as culinary destinations haven’t been to the Alchemist and Barrister. Equally regarded for its dark, saloon-like atmosphere as it is for creative menu items like a cheesesteak salad, this bar has a lot going for it. Like frequent live entertainment nights. If you prefer the sound of your own voice to that of other nocturnal crooners, there’s an open-mic night once a week.

    Princeton University Events
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    If you have some free evenings during your visit to Princeton, it may be worthwhile to check if there are any athletic events or student theater productions going on while you’re in town. Princeton folks are especially spoiled when it comes to the performing arts, as the University has several theaters and concert halls on campus.

    Nassau Hall
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    It may be the most photographed spot on the Princeton University campus, but just because it’s rather touristy doesn’t mean Nassau Hall isn’t worth checking out. Erected in 1756, the building is now home to the office of the University President and is guarded by the two bronze tigers facing the Nassau Street gates. Nassau Hall was named a National Historic Landmark in 1960, a much-deserved honor given that the structure survived the Revolutionary War, several fires and, probably, its fare share of toilet-paperings.

    Princeton University Art Museum
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    When vising the campus, it would be a sin not to stop by the Princeton University Art Museum. Directly adjacent to McCormick Hall, not only does this building contain one of the most impressive university art collections in the world, but there’s no cost of admission. That means you don’t have to feel any pressure to take in too many of the 80,000 works, from Byzantine jewelry to Dürer prints, in a single visit. Closed Mondays.

    Einstein's House
    By Martin Fritz Huber

    There has been no shortage of brilliant academics during Princeton University’s luminous history, but in terms of reputation one German-born physicist towers above all others. One of the most recognizable figures of the 20th century, Albert Einstein’s status as a cerebral demigod has only grown since his death in 1955. To remind yourself that he was, in fact, just a man, it may help to visit his former home on 112 Mercer Street. The house is still in use as a private residence, so please forbear from any kind of late-night, equation-mumbling séances.

    Upscale Shopping at Hamilton
    By Julie Schwietert Collazo

    Many of the shops lining Princeton's Nassau Street offer goods that can be bought on a college student's budget. Hamilton, however, skews a bit more toward the budget of the accomplished Princeton alum. In addition to jewelry and watches by such names as Cartier and Patek Philippe, Hamliton sells fine goods for the home, made by the likes of Baccarat, Hermes, and Lalique.
