Quintessential New England Town

Come visit the picturesque town of Woodstock, Vermont.

Now when most people hear the name, "Woodstock", they think of a huge music festival in the 60's. Well, that Woodstock is in New York State.  The Woodstock I am showing you is located in Vermont...in a whole different world!

Woodstock, VT is an elegant New England town about a half hour east of Killington.

Town of Woodstock, VT
The center of town is filled with restaurants, boutiques, book stores and art galleries.

Woodstock, VT - A charming New England town
I didn't take enough pictures of this area known as The Green.  To the right (not pictured for some crazy reason) is the majestic Woodstock Inn and Resort.  If we didn't stay in Killington when we go to Vermont, I would definitely being staying at this hotel.  Although, I guess I could just go to their spa next time.  Check their website out.  It's quite impressive!

Speaking of impressive...

I love walking down the streets and staring at the distinguished homes.

Woodstock, VT General Store - one of Vermont's oldest general stores
This is one of Vermont's oldest general stores: F H Gillinghams and Sons.  They have seem to have everything in this store!  Why would anyone ever want to leave this town?

Here we are on our way to our favorite bookstore: The Yankee BookshopThe kids love that place mostly because the owners keep their two Bernese Mountain dogs in the store.  Check them out on their website.
