It is hard to believe, but it has been fifty years since the historic Woodstock festival in 1969.
Woodstock’s effect on music, art, and culture is indisputable. However, many people don’t realize that the Woodstock festival did not take place in the New York town of the same name. Instead, due to logistical reasons, the festival was moved several times until it finally settled in the town of Bethel, NY. The historic Woodstock festival grounds are preserved to this day as the site of the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. Today, you can visit the grounds, tour the museum dedicated to Woodstock and participate in special events. The summer is the ideal time to visit Woodstock’s Historic site and celebrate a special piece of history with a great weekend getaway from NYC.
