Foxborough is an extremely safe and entertaining town. I have lived here nearly all of my life, and I have not run into any major issues. The police and fire departments are excellent. They are extremely friendly and are quick to help. Also, the public schools are top notch, especially Foxborough High School and John J. Ahern Middle School.

The town hosts Gillette Stadium, so this creates tough traffic on game days a few hours before and after the games, but this is mostly on main highways and roads.

Patriot's Place offers safe and family-friendly entertainment, featuring several shops, restaurants, and a movie theatre.

Overall a great place to live.

Foxboro is a very small town that can act like a city. Foxboro is home of the New England Patriots, which causes a small town to turn very big on special events. Foxboro residents are extremely welcoming and always positive.
It's a really small town, everyone claims everyone knows everyone but no one knows anyone. Really, you can't walk down the street a few seconds without seeing a beer bottle or a cigarette pack.
