47 miles from Chicago, Woodstock is on the edge of the Chicago metropolitan area. We’re close to the city with a small town, rural personality all our own.
Rich with arts and culture, a picturesque town square and a world-renowned Opera House, Woodstock also has an independent streak brimming with creativity and entrepreneurship. Artists and locally-owned businesses are embraced. Our school system is a leader in dual language education. And music, whether rock, folk, jazz, country or classical, fills the air indoors and out most every night.
