Additional Perspectives on Patriot Place, Foxborough, MA

Article and photos by Eric H.

Patriot Place, at Gillette Stadium (home of the New England Patriots) in Foxborough, MA, continues it rapid development, en route to becoming a major destination for shopping, entertainment and commercial uses.

Traveling here once a week to eagerly monitor its progress, I am constantly amazed at how quickly Patriot Place is growing as it seems like it went from an empty parcel of land to an established shopping plaza in virtually no time. Stores and restaurants seem to be opening every week! The "look" is marvelous with attractive walkways and buildings, juxtaposed against the stunning state-of-the-art Gillette Stadium. Patiriot Place already has a strong presence with stores like Reebok, Victoria's Secret, Bass Pro Shops, Aeropostale and restaurants like Red Robin, CBS Scene, Skipjack, Davio's and Blue Fin Lounge. Baskin Robbins recently opened a more colorful version of its storied ice cream chain here!

Recently, The Hall at Patriot Place opened with its interactive exhibits and New England Patriots memorabilia. I can hardly wait to visit this wonderful concept for its entertaining and educational presentations.

By next spring, Patriot Place should be well on its way to being completed that includes a 150-room hotel, a medical center, and 70 shops, restaurants, and entertainment options.

Stay tuned, and I'll be updating you frequently on The Weekly New England Travel and Vacation Gazette on what's happening at Patriot Place from a personal perspective.
