In Woodstock, NY you still can see (aging) hippies, a store that only sells candles, and another that traffics in 40-year-old pictures of one-time resident Bob Dylan. No one blinks if you wear tie-dye—there's also a shop for that—but you would get an odd glance if you strolled around in a suit and tie.
A love of the arts (particularly folk and rock music), a fascination with Eastern religions, support for feminism and left-wing politics, a spirit of tolerance, and an appreciation of the outdoors also characterize Woodstock, NY.
The pictures below focus on Woodstock, NY attractions and include the colorful, fanciful shops and eateries that make it such a unique place to visit.
