Something is always happening in Woodstock. Enjoy the prettiest town square around. Enjoy a show at the Opera House, where Orson Welles made his debut as a director eighty years ago. Shop at the Farmer's Market, named one of the best in the state. 

The county seat for McHenry County, Woodstock is 47 miles from Chicago and accessible via Metra or the interstate (exit at Route 47 off I-90 and head north). Here, you will find historic charm, from Victorian architecture to Orson Welles to the birthplace of Dick Tracy. You can shop at locally-owned boutiques, dine at numerous restaurants, relax at one of our many bars, and enjoy live music indoors and out.
