It's a fun people watching spot. I can imagine at Leef peeping season it will be seriously jammed packed. I pretty babbling brook runs through the town. The actual 1969 Woodstock concert grounds are an hour away.

It was a Monday, but the town was still teeming with people, musicians playing in the square. It is a wonderful town to stroll and browse.
