Ken at the Foxborough Common, Foxborough, Massachusetts, 22 April 2012

On the way home from the New England Folk Festival in Mansfield third day, I was tired, but determined since I had driven a long way that I could get another town in the Meditate Mass 351 Challenge.  It was a rainy day and I really wanted to get home since I was tired from three days of singing, dancing, and hugging lots of friends, but since I don’t get down to this area of the state often.  Therefore, I looked at the map and it seemed like Foxborough would be the easiest one for me to go to.

Most people around the country have heard of Foxborough as it’s the home of Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots and the New England Revolution play.  I also went to Foxborough many times when I was first developing as a career consultant as I participated in the WIND Networking group.  It’s also been in the news lately as there was just a vote by the town board not to allow casinos in town (they were being promoted by the Kraft family to attach to Gillette.  Also, Route 1 goes through Foxborough and that’s a big commercial area.

I instead went to the town center and got to see what that was like.  It is sort of a rotary around the town common, and it was really nice.  I hadn’t been there before. It reminded me a little of Westborough in that there was a major commercial route nearby and this had all the local stores. There looked like there was  nice theater there, and I wish I had had more time to spend.  I’ll have to see if I can go back when it is sunny!

So, where have do you want to go back to?
