Historic charm and Ivy League pedigree

Princeton, New Jersey is home to the world-famous Princeton University, a well-known Ivy League school. And while Princeton University-with its historic buildings, art museum, and more-helps define the town, there is plenty more to enjoy about this beautiful hamlet in central New Jersey. Due in part to the university, the town enjoys numerous amenities and infrastructure, including museums, a ballet, transportation connections, and more that are rare for similarly sized towns elsewhere.

While best known for the university, Princeton has a long and important history, even serving as the Nation's capital for a short time. Easily accessible by train, bus, and car, it is close to both the New York metropolitan area and Philadelphia. Downtown Princeton has a postcard-perfect American main street with local businesses galore in Palmer Square, and nature is never far away in this pastoral part of the Garden State.

Real estate in Princeton has a higher median cost compared to New Jersey as a whole but is still significantly cheaper than New York City. With access to New York City and all the additional benefits of a smaller town, Princeton offers the best of both worlds.
