The cool collection of downtown eclectic shops, tasty restaurants and distinctive galleries are alluring to the Woodstock apartment dweller. It's a true Midwestern city of 25,000 people that is historic in its center, while completely up to date, and is buffered by lush farmlands. This city is not the home of the famous Woodstock concert of 1969, but certainly has a musical flair as home to the Woodstock Opera House and a destination for live music in McHenry County.
Many annual events take place in Woodstock, including Dick Tracy Days in the summer, Harvest Fest, Festival of Lights and Groundhog Days (much of the popular movie, Groundhog Day, was filmed here). The notable City Hall and many of the renovated buildings on the Woodstock Square are available for a self tour.
Downtown parks, soccer fields, nature areas, and good old-fashioned parks in which Woodstock apartment-ites can have a picnic or toss a Frisbee or football make up the Woodstock Park District of 18 parks. If you have a family reunion or other large gathering, pavilions may be rented for their use.
Not too far from Chicago, Woodstock's Railroad station is the second to last stop on Metra's Union/Pacific Northwest Line that originates in downtown Chicago. Notable residents who have lived in city include actor Paul Newman, Chester Gould (creator of Dick Tracy cartoon) and Orson Welles.
Living in a Woodstock apartment is a comfortable lifestyle in which to live, work and play.more...
