THE WOODSTOCK WAY OF LIFE

_______________________

Woodstock, NY is a living legend, fabled for its arts, music, activism and alluring spirit. Woodstock is a hub of activity, with festivals, open-air markets, great food, shopping, galleries and cultural events for all tastes and all seasons. Woodstock is the quintessential Catskills town—mountain views, swimming holes, hiking trails and a love-of-the-land ethos that permeates the region, practiced by the people who call it home. Woodstock is a way of life, where peace and love are a practice, not a slogan. Woodstock is many things to many people, but always uniquely its own.
