Picture perfect Princeton is all decked out in holiday finery. We visited today and enjoyed the many shops around Palmer Square and Nassau Street. Of course we stopped by PJ's Pancake House. All of the decorations in Princeton are fresh. You can smell the pine cones and evergreens with fresh wreaths and garland adorning entryways and arches -- all festooned with bright red velvet ribbon. Street carolers and brass trios entertain shoppers with Christmas melodies and Santa is there as well. And he doesn't hesitate to call out "Merry Christmas" to all. The shops are filled with wonderful goodies and now the Princeton University Shop and bookstore are right there on Nassau Street for everyone to enjoy. The town was bustling, though nonetheless intimate and welcoming. Be sure to put Princeton on your list!
