Beautiful Village of Woodstock

21 Apr
Travel & Leisure Names Woodstock, VT one of
  “America’s Greatest Main Streets” 
 
Woodstock, VT“Walk along Center Street, with its boutiques and bakeries, and you’ll soon understand why this bucolic river valley town of 3,200 now attracts well-off rusticators, drawn by the quiet life and grand historic homes. There’s little trace of Woodstock’s heritage as a prosperous 19th-century center of industry; even the power lines have been buried. Center Street divides at The Green, an oval park fronted by colonnaded houses and its own covered bridge.”
