Princeton is priceless...one of those little towns that you leave knowing you’ll come back to visit again--and again! Set in a remote yet centrally-located spot in Wisconsin just west of Green Lake, its location on the Fox River and near the Mecan River is destination enough for daytrip canoers, bikers, kayakers, hunters, fishermen, shoppers, diners...and just about everyone! Downtown Princeton reveals cutting-edge boutiques that might easily be side-by-side retailers in one of Chicago’s hippest spots.
Many visitors drive to Princeton on Saturday to enjoy the largest outdoor flea market in Wisconsin, where they find an abundant array of trinkets-to-treasures, including candles, antiques, decorative garden sculptures, handcrafted furniture, spices, the freshest cheese around, clothing, plants, books--far too much totally list--the fun is in the finding! After perusing the morning-to-early-afternoon market most people head downtown, or drive to some of the off-the-beaten path shops and attractions to experience some of the finest urban flair shops in the state. You’ll find handblown glass, espresso and cappuccino, clothing with sass, jewelry and accessories, floral design shops, vintage goods, books and Willy Rae art, nuts and bolts, garden accessories, Amish furniture, yummy ice cream and more.
Princeton is also "antique heaven" for those who love objects with history. Two large antique malls are both on Hwy 23 right by the City Park/Flea Market, and there are also a number of antique/collectible shops throughout town that you won’t want to miss! Put Princeton on your list of places to visit--many say that it is their favorite community in Wisconsin, and we are sure you will agree!
