On your next trip to Princeton make sure to consider employing our Princeton car hire services as your main means of transportation through this prestigious university Borough. With a population of around thirty thousand, Princeton can count great names such as Albert Einstein and Thomas Mann among its former residents.
While there is a Princeton Airport, it serves mostly general aviation flying as well as business and charter flights, but not commercial ones, so it is unlikely that you’ll be landing there. More likely you will be reaching the city by rail or road, however regardless of how you get there, once there make sure to employ our Princeton car rental services so that you can have a car at your disposal while on your trip.
Obviously one of the main attractions of the place is the Princeton University Campus which features several beautiful buildings built in the Collegiate Gothic style, alongside the colonial-era Nassau Hall – which acted as the temporary capitol of the United States for a summer – and the very modern Woodrow Wilson School buildings. Other highlights of the campus are the University Chapel with its stained glass windows and stone arches and of course the Princeton library which features a lot of great exhibits.
Outside the Woodrow Wilson School building, you can see the Fountain of Freedom. The fountain itself is surrounded by a larger pool, the pool is less than two feed deep and you’ll usually see children playing in it. There’s a local tradition of the University’s marching band to play while standing in the fountain after football victories.
As mentioned earlier, Albert Einstein once lived here, and you can visit the house that he lived in, a very small and ordinary home, at his request there are no markers to show which one it is but you’ll find out once you’re there.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in the city so make sure to employ our Princeton car hire services as a good way of exploring the town as well as its surroundings.
