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.

From arts and culture at the Old Courthouse to entertainment at the Woodstock Opera House to the Woodstock Theatre to walking tours detailing scenes from the movie "Groundhog Day" (which was filmed here), Woodstock, Illinois is charming, quaint, historic--and a creative community with a deep independent streak.
