Yes he will. Thanks a lot for interest. He leaves now and comes back to Europe in the middle of April.

All those places are quite doable from Foxboro - all less than an hour from Foxboro. May I also add Newport, Rhode Island. New York City is only around 3 hours from Foxboro, so very doable for a weekend.

The Berkshires in Massachusetts, along with some very cute towns, make an interesting weekend.

Does your friend ski or want to try? Wachusett mountain and mount Sunapee are close enough to do as say trips.

Plenty of great places north as well.

Portsmount, NH and Portland, ME for great small New England cities.

Vermont or New Hampshire has a lot of outdoor options around the ski areas as well.

These areas will take 2-3 hours to get to from Foxboro but if he goes for a long weekend or something it is worth the trip
