Quintessential New England Town

Let’s take a walk through the picturesque New England town of Woodstock, Vermont.

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!

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

Too bad 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.  Since we stay in Killington when we go to Vermont, I probably won’t ever get a chance to stay at the hotel.  Although, I guess I could just go to their spa next time.  Check their website out.  It’s quite impressive!

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 Bookshop. The kids love that place mostly because the owners keep their two Bernese Mountain dogs in the store.  Check them out on their website.

I have always been obsessed with white houses with black shutters.  I could stare at this house all day!
