With so much greenery throughout Mercer you can imagine how beautiful it becomes once spring hits. Pops of color against historic buildings, alongside winding roads and throughout fields of green. If you’re looking to fully embrace its beauty (and update your Instagram feed) then you’ll want to visit these charming spots.

There are many scenic spots to see here, but there's only one place to get an above-the-trees, bird’s eye view of the surrounding.

 

Lewis-Sigler Institute

Princeton University, Princeton

Lewis Institute

We’re taking you inside for this one because it’s truly a sight to be seen and certainly a unique setting for classes within Princeton.

 

Sayen House & Gardens

155 Hughes Drive, Hamilton Township

Sayen Gardens

Want to feel like you’re walking through a painting? You’ll want to visit here!

 

Fountain of Freedom at Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs

Washington Road, Princeton

Fountain

The 10-foot high sculptures of “Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads” silhouetted against the building have since been removed for conservation and relocated elsewhere on campus. But that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying this true spectacle!

 

Grounds for Sculpture

80 Sculptors Way, Hamilton Township

Grounds for Sculpture

A kaleidoscope of color, towering sculptures and endless areas of wonder.

 

Nassau Hall

Princeton University

Nassau Hall

We couldn’t complete this list without a photo of Princeton’s Nassau Hall. It’s the entrance to the university and is guarded by two large tiger statues. If you want a photo that says Ivy League, this is it.
