Woodstock: Must-Visit Town

Woodstock named must-visit small town near Chicago.

Woodstock was listed by Curbed Chicago among 13 small towns near Chicago “you need to visit.”

“Woodstock is incredibly quaint,” wrote AJ LaTrace. “It’s such a picturesque little American town that its downtown played a starring role in the popular 1993 film, ‘Groundhog Day.’

“While it’s got all of the small-town charm that anyone could ask for, it’s still located within the Chicago metro area and has access to the Metra commuter rail system,” he added. “One of its more famous buildings is its old opera house which still serves as a performance venue.”

With its semi-weekly, award-winning farmers market to more u-pick apple orchards than any other town in the Chicagoland, this is a perfect time to plan a visit.
