I most enjoyed the various art galleries in Woodstock. The Woodstock Artists Association and several other galleries offer a very wide range of interesting art. I enjoyed walking through many of the shops in Woodstock looking for antiques, collectibles and a lot of cheesy '60s hippy paraphanalia. It looks as if some of the people that attended the famous concert took up permanent residence in Woodstock. This makes Woodstock an interesting place for people watching. My only negative impression was that the town was trying too hard to commercialize the feeling and look associated with the event from over 20 years ago.

If you want a fast but tasty Mexican food, you will like Taco Juan. I got a vegeterian burrito and a fruit smoothie and was very satisfied. The dining experience consisted of order, sit, eat, get out. A funky, fun interior included pictures of local residents and famous visitors.

You'll find a lot of cheesy 'new age' merchandise...but this fun to look at. You'll also find a lot of shops dedicated to those who want a souvenir reminiscent of the concert several years earlier. But beyond all of this, Woodstock has some interesting places to find eclectic clothing, antiques and home furnishings. Just walk around town and you will be able to find what you want very quickly.

If you are an avid art collector, you will like Woodstock, particularly if you like something a little less traditional. But don't expect to find a bargain. The art galleries know an upscale crowd can be found breezing through Woodstock and the art is priced accordingly.

No need for directions, just go to the center of town and start walking. You will find several art galleries in very close proximity.
