Princeton InsiderHi there. Welcome to Princeton Insider - the smart and official scoop on things to do, where to shop, and places to eat in Princeton.

Most recent posting below. See other blog postings in the column to the right.
Princeton and the surrounding communities know how to get their Holiday ON - Palmer Square, McCarter’s A Christmas Carol, Pennington Walk, Santa at the Airport, Morven’s Festival of Trees – these are just a few of the local annual favorites, not to be forgotten or ignored.
The following list is more like Holiday ADVENTURES – events that are not local, but equally as fabulous. We all know about the tree at Rockefeller Center and ice-skating at Wolman Rink in NYC. Below is a list of things you might not know about. Yes, you might have to train, drive, or UBER there but the journey is always half the fun and the experience even greater. Get out there – new Holiday traditions are waiting to be made.
