To start the area is beautifully located in the base of the Catskill Mountains. Driving into the village you are greeted by the large and majestic giants, the mountains gracefully standing behind the village. One of my favorite things to see is on misty or rainy days, the mountains appear to be wearing the clouds as boas or shrouds around their shoulders. It is totally breathtaking to see. You can drive up the mountains and see the Buddhist Monastery, or go hiking throughout the area and enjoy the views of the Woodstock below, and see as far as your eyes can!
After you are done enjoy the mountain air, and views, you can hike, or drive down the Mountains into the village to eat! No matter what you are crazing Woodstock has a place where you can get it! If you are into eh mood for baked goods, teas or coffee, Bread Alone will satisfy that craving. I always get coffee and their lemon pound cake whenever I am in there. The pound cake is delectably moist, sweet, without being overwhelming. They also have many gourmet sandwiches, salads and soups for you to enjoy! All are just as, if not more, delicious than the last thing on the menu. If you are in the mood for Chinese food, look no further that Little Bear. Even if the food wasn’t amazing, which is not the case, the scenery and ambiance is enough to get you in the door more than once! You overlook a running stream in a heated glass enclosed patio. Or you can sit inside, by the wood rustic bar and brick floors! The food is authentic and amazing. Enjoy some tea and get some dumplings, it is not too expensive and completely delicious. Every one of your taste buds will be thanking you after you eat there. The Gypsy Wolf on Tinker Street offers delectable, fresh and wholesome Mexican cuisine. It is authentic filling and you will be making more than one visit there after your first bite! And try a margarita as a favor to me, they are strong and delicious! These three restaurants only scrape the surface of what is available you can really get absolutely anything in the area. And more importantly it will be done well and taste good!
After you have filled your belly with the epicurean and gourmand delights, it is time to go shopping! I love to make a trip up to Woodstock during the holiday, or when someone’s birthday is coming up. They have a delightful toy store on Tinker Street, which sells all kind of unique toys and children’s books that you could only dream about, or haven’t seen them since you own childhood! I also like the soap shop that is next door. They sell Crabtree& Evelyn products, among other things. I was just there the other day and bought a soap that was made to look like a goldfish bag you win at the fair, and it had a plastic goldfish in the soap! How cute is that. They also have a great Men’s clothing store called Changes. I love to shop there for the men in my life! It offers stylish, quality clothing. It is really just like a boutique you might fine down in SoHo in Manhattan!
In summary Woodstock is a great place to visit, work, and play. No matter what you are looking for you can find in here! There are amazing restaurants, stores, scenery, and hiking. There are many galleries in the town and the Woodstock Playhouse is there as well. Grab dinner and a show while you are there. Make a trip up to Woodstock, you won’t regret it!
