Dave and I are due for another road trip to Woodstock. 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."
