The Go-To: Prime Pats Tailgating
Finding a place to tailgate at Patriots home games is an art. You need to be a safe distance from Gillette’s hordes, but not so far that you’re walking for days. And, of course, there must be room for all the game-day necessities (grill, beer, friends). Our favorite play: hitting the Enterprise lot, a 20-minute stroll south of the stadium. There’s ample space to cook out, and after the game you can hit the highway in minutes—a huge victory, regardless of the score.
