The Woodstock Area is the perfect place for a relaxing day by the water. The Ottauquechee River right through the center of town, so no matter where you walk, you'll have a pretty view of rushing water moving over ancient glacial rocks. The Kedron Brook parallels the community to the south along route 106 and offers cool, shady spots with the sound of rushing water. Stop at Teagle's Landing for a picnic.
