You've undoubtedly heard of the 1969 festival called Woodstock. The nearby town has preserved the spirit of that festival even up until today, where it maintains a creative atmosphere, cultural significance, and no small number of local musicians, artists, and artisans. You can buy any type of rainbow tie-dye imaginable here from the locals, as well as the many local markets. Or tune into the grassroots radio, or check out the local film festival. Head over to Tinker Street to see the local artisan's wares, whether you prefer visual art or pottery. And with its proximity to the Catskills, there's no shortage of activities outside of town either. Check out Plateau Mountain and Overlooking Mountain trails for a hike through lush forests, and keep an eye out for local wildlife as you explore! Make sure to rent one of these unique vacation rentals near Woodstock to complete your stay.
