Woodstock is a small town in the Catskills about 2 hours from New York City. The town is famous because of the iconic Woodstock Music Festival held in the area in 1969. Although festival wasn’t actually held in Woodstock (it was held on a farm in Bethel about 60 miles away), the town lended it’s name since the festival was going to be nearby. Woodstock has always been popular for artists, musicians, and writers which gives it a chill, hippie vibe. It’s a great escape from New York City and one of our favorite upstate NY towns we’ve visited.
