So named by The Ladies Home Journal some years ago, Woodstock is a prosperous resort community located between the green hills and the Ottauquechee River. There is an attractive downtown business center and a number of tourist attractions including the Billings Farm and Museum, a ski center, a gorgeous golf course, and innumerable craft and artisan shops. Antique stores seem to number in the millions, like one on every corner. And all are set in this lovely valley. There are many superb restaurants most featuring American cuisine and local produce.
