In Woodstock, you’ll find magnificent scenery, galleries, boutiques, museums, outdoor activities and a relaxing and creative ambiance. Although, Woodstock is known for the famous concert in 1969 (which actually took place in Bethel, NY), the town has been a center for the arts for over a hundred years. Fabulous arts and crafts of all varieties abound in the many galleries and boutique shops in Woodstock on Tinker Street. The groovy sounds that established Woodstock as a haven for musicians such as Bob Dylan and the Band are still celebrated today along with the frequent classical, jazz and folk music concerts and festivals that take place here. The Woodstock Film Festival is a popular attraction that continues to attract filmmakers, musicians and celebrities to the area. It’s no wonder that Woodstock is a popular weekend residence for artists, musicians and creatives.
If the museums, galleries and shopping are not enough, one can participate in a wealth of outdoor activities. Mountain biking and hiking trails in the nearby parks offer opportunities for good exercise and awe-inspiring vistas. A popular hike up Overlook Mountain allows hikers to see panoramic views of the Hudson Valley, Catskill Mountains and beyond. The natural beauty of the area lures visitors year round–particularly from downstate, Manhattan and Brooklyn. There are plenty of bed-and-breakfasts, inns, lodges and guest houses to make staying in Woodstock convenient.
Art, music, scenic beauty, history and a groovy vibe combine to create an unmatched experience in Woodstock.
