Dave and I are due for another Woodstock road trip. Settled in 1768, Woodstock is repeatedly named one of the prettiest small towns in America. When you visit, you’ll quickly understand why.

Here you’ll find historic homes and local businesses lining the streets, a covered bridge in the middle of town, Billings Farm & Museum and Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park.

In Vermont: An Explorer’s Guide, I came across the following quote about Woodstock by Senator Jacob Collamer (1791-1865) that pretty much sums it up: “The good people of Woodstock have less incentive than others to yearn for heaven.”

**If you go: Woodstock Area Chamber of Commerce

  • Love that area of Vermont… always visit when we return, but the traffic can drive you a bit nuts when you’re used to the living in the country in the midwest, although we have plenty of traffic as well and more each year. Larry

  • What lovely photography of this lovely antique town…! I do love old places…if I ever come to Vermont I certainly would love to visit this pretty place!!

    …(oh, happy anniversary…..I noticed the magnificient orchids, cara Erica!)
    ciao ciao elvira

  • Hi Larry — It really is a nice area. We always take a couple of day trips to Woodstock every year. I’m glad to hear you make it back there too!

    Hi Elvira — Woodstock is really a classic New England town and the houses and buildings are so beautiful.
    (Thanks for the anniversary wishes! We had a wonderful weekend!)
