Princeton Junction isn't a very interesting place to live, however, they do have a variety of stores around the area, such as Quaker Bridge Mall and Marketfair, but other than that there isn't really much to do in the area. Mostly people who live in Princeton Junction drive to Princeton to hang out with friends. The environment is very clean and the community is overall very nice and quiet.

I love Princeton Junction and wish I could live here forever, but it is too expensive for me to live in a house here long-term.
There are a variety of options in this areas, from grocery stores, gyms, restaurants, dry cleaners, and gas stations.
