One of the many things that make Woodstock, Vermont special is its central location for a variety of easy day trips in our beautiful state of Vermont. You could be camping at a nearby state park, exploring Windsor historic sites, or vacationing in Quechee or Hartford. Woodstock is a short drive in multiple directions to loads of fun, but what makes us unique is some of our signature events.
In August we celebrate
