Every year hundreds of fans make their first visit to the Boston area, and their first visit to Foxboro to see the Patriots play live. Many come here in search of advice, and with questions about where to stay, what to do, how long will it take to get there, etcetera. Unfortunately many of those questions are often unanswered because they are in one of the less-often visited subforums such as the New Members Area or Patriot Nation, so after seeing one of these threads over there I thought I'd start a thread here where it will hopefully get more expert responses for those making their first pilgrimage to Gillette. In addition others that ask similar questions throughout the season can be pointed to this thread for answers. Here's a sampling of one of these threads; hopefully the forum can offer some good advice based on their experiences.
