Woodstock, settled in 1686, is nestled in the heart of Connecticut’s Quiet Corner. The area is distinguished by rolling hills, historic villages, and thousands of acres of active farmland. Located less than forty-five minutes from Hartford and just over an hour from Boston, Connecticut’s Quiet Corner offers a scenic and serene escape.
Explore the area with a drive down scenic Route 169, a National Historic Byway. On your way, stop at one of the many orchards, vineyards, nurseries, galleries, museums, shops, or restaurants along the way. While the area is called the Quiet Corner for its rural beauty, there is a variety of exciting things to see and do.
Contact the Woodstock Merchants Association or Pomfret Proprietors Association for a listing of restaurants, lodging, shops, and activities in the area. The Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism is the official vacation guide for the state.
