Woodstock, distinctive as a "top 10 undiscovered" and "top 10 small town," is set in the foothills of the Green Mountains. The town population is a mix of year-round and part-time residents, with people from many walks of life with diverse experiences, Wallace says.

The town has a legacy of historic preservation, many antique homes and a protected historic district. "The community is centered around a central village core with a fine assortment of shopping, restaurants and services that are very uncommon for a small village setting," Wallace says. "Woodstock offers a pleasant mix of a relaxed pace combined with the availability of recreational and cultural amenities."
