Xfinity Center

Reviewed By Tripking07 - New Hampshire

This is wonderful place to see a concert. The acoustics are top notch, even 30 years later!

The parking is smooth, the layout is smooth. There are many bathrooms and plenty of food options. They keep the restrooms clean. The staff is very helpful.

Getting through security is fairly easy and you never feel like your standing around. Seats are set up so everyone can see, and big screens for those to the far back.

I recommend this place and love it!

Borderland State Park

The 3-story home built by artist and suffragist Blanche Ames and her botanist husband Oakes, is the centerpiece of this park. Visitors can also walk and horseback ride, fish, canoe, ice-skate and sled.

Borderland State Park has easy trails for walkers and more challenging ones for hikers. I took the easy 3 mile walk which is a slightly uneven unpaved road that includes woodlands, three ponds, interesting rock formations, meadows and farmland. The mansion was closed during my visit, but the exterior is interesting and worth inspecting. The park is large and uncrowded. There is a visitor center with restrooms and trail maps. Overall a top walkers destination. Bring insect repellent.

The Hall at Patriot Place

The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon is an exciting, innovative and interactive, modern museum experience for all ages. The Kraft family, in an effort to preserve team history and honor the greatest Patriots of all-time, built and opened The Hall in 2008. It has since undergone championship renovations to enhance its Super Bowl Experience exhibit, which takes guests inside the team’s five Super Bowl wins. It includes the sparkling Vince Lombardi Super Bowl trophies and championship rings, an interactive that allows guests to virtually make Malcolm Butler’s Super Bowl XLIX-clinching interception, and the new Anatomy of a Comeback area that breaks down the Super Bowl LI win. The Hall regularly adds to its collection and changes out artifacts and exhibits to ensure a fresh experience.

WWI Memorial Park and Zoo

Reviewed By ferogz - North Attleboro, Massachusetts, United States

Love this park! There is so much to do. Lots of areas for walks, a small zoo, two play ground areas, a sand play area and the most amazing slide that every kid dreams of. Easy to park at and lots of tables for picnic lunches. Also the garden with the water butterfly is so much fun for the little kids.

National Shrine of our Lady of La Salette

Reviewed By redeco - Warren, Massachusetts

The National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette is a destination for pilgrims any time of year, but between Thanksgiving and the New Year, the shrine dazzles with 500,000 Christmas lights celebrating the birth of the Christ child. The display is provided for a free-will donation - so, there is no formal fee, and a visit here makes for a great family outing.

The lights are distributed over ten acres, and there is a massive amount of parking space. No admission fee (but loosen your purse strings and leave a donation); and pets were in evidence. They may or may not be allowed - not sure. There are several places to buy snacks. I tried a slice of the Canadian meat pie in the cafeteria (the line moves fast), and loved it. They also had wonderful desserts and hot chocolate.

The place is crowded, so expect congestion, whining kids, and visitors who are generally very nice and very patient. On weekends at 7 pm, I recommend Fr. Pat's concert of faith-based songs and carols. Fr. Pat accompanies himself on the guitar.

Bring the family, and Enjoy!

Wrentham Village Premium Outlets

Wrentham Village Premium Outlets is more than just a great collection of the finest designer labels and brands, it's New England's largest outlet center. Include a shopping stop during your next trip to Boston. Located 35 minutes south of Boston, it's a true bargain hunter's haven.Daily transportation from downtown Boston hotels provides easy access to the center. Many visitors also chose to purchase one of the popular Shop & Stay packages featured on the center's website.

Love the concept of this outlet. Great variety of stores to shop. Some high end stores mixed in with some average stores make it so great!

Ward's Berry Farm

Reviewed By Kiev_Traveller - Kiev, Ukraine

We were offered an unprofessional staff of Facebooking Teenagers to make us $10 sandwiches that were not so great. Just another example of overpriced foodstuffs masquerading as "organic" or "home-made" most likely made or grown by a 3rd grader.

If your the type of person that enjoys paying too much for something then this is your new favorite place. $18 frozen pie that was basically made with canned pumpkin pie filling or tasted just the same as. Pimple faced teen employees struggling to understand basic customer service and ringing up items.
"Organic" potatoes half of which are rotted through and through but pristine exterior?
Can't really think of anything to recommend other than if you like buying lemonade to support little kids playing at business people I guess you might walk away from here feeling good about being fleeced.

Whether you want old fashioned penny candy, hard to find baking mixes or collectibles, this is the place to go. Player pianos entertain the kids, fine country style furnishings and hard to find accessories keep adults happy exploring all the nooks and crannies. Always something interesting at Mansfield Old Country Store.

Gillette Stadium

Reviewed By CMC2010 - Florida

We cannot believe how lucky we were to get tickets to the Optum Lounge for the Patriots vs Titans game on Jan. 13. It was AWESOME! We could stay inside and watch the game thru the large glass windows or on the large screen tv's, or we could go outside and stand right under the field goal posts and watch them score touchdowns. It was a cold night so sometimes we were inside and sometimes we were outside. The bathrooms are convenient. The food and drinks are reasonably priced. The chairs were comfortable. The only complaint (which is not about the lounge) is the parking. Gillette Stadium really needs to improve their parking situation. We waited over 45 mins to get into the parking lot at the stadium to find they only had two booth collectors taking money to park. No wonder it took so long to get everyone into the parking lot. This would NEVER happen at the Dolphins Stadium (being from FL we have gone here many times to see the Patriots play the Dolphins) and it would NEVER happen at the Tampa Bucs Stadium either (we just saw the Patriots play the Bucs Oct. 5, 2017). Gillette needs to improve their parking situation.

Bog Iron Brewing

Reviewed By Trip M - Lansing, Michigan

Bog Iron Brewing is one of my favorite breweries in New England. I have been there at least 5 times and have not been disappointed. They make great IPAs and Stouts. Most are available on draft with a few that are bottle only. The staff is friendly and fun. The bar mix snacks are appreciated! I have visited 172 breweries to date and this one is near the top of the list.
