Home and haven for artists and musicians, Woodstock is also a launch point for recreation in the beautiful Catskills, including skiing at Windham and Hunter Moutains.  As you'd imagine, there are good vibes in this colorful small town, which is home to the Woodstock Playhouse, Bearsville Theater, and Byrdcliffe Art Colony.  Stop in at the Bread Alone Bakery for coffee and pastries before checking out the many artist Studio Tours.
