I was sent to Framingham on business. I found the city fairly inconvenient. Other than quick-stop types of stores, there were no businesses open late at night. If you wanted a late meal, or early breakfast, there was nowhere to turn. No all-night Denny's, or similar, coffee shop.
Traffic was amazingly heavy, for the size of town Framingham is. I have no idea where all those people could possibly be headed.
Other than city-center, there were no sidewalks for pedestrian traffic, making the auto traffic problem even worse.
If you can pick a place other than Framingham to visit, do it!
