The city of Princeton, New Jersey offers everything you'd expect from an ivy league town, including golden leaves every fall, stone buildings, local coffee shops and campus bike paths. Julia Bumke was smitten after attending Princeton University, and although she now lives in Massachusetts, visits her old stomping grounds often. Her recommendations include the best literary Princeton has to offer, including a basement coffee shop with the greatest chai in town, a cash-only bookstore where you'll find back-issue literary magazines, and the restaurant that makes an amazing duck grilled cheese sandwich.
