‘Picturesque’ Towns

McHenry County towns dubbed “picturesque” and “delightful.”

Woodstock, Crystal Lake and Algonquin were recently named among 10 “perfectly picturesque” small towns hiding across Illinois by website

“If you want to step back in time, Woodstock has loads of buildings that keep with their history,” the site explained regarding its No. 3 pick. “This includes the gorgeous Woodstock Opera House.”

Crystal Lake, the 6th most picturesque, “offers a friendly, small-town atmosphere,” the site said.

About Algonquin, the site’s No. 7 favorite, it said, “it’s a quaint river town that was once little but has been growing.”
