Don't move to Woodstock, IL 0.5 rating By 28331974 ( Jul 08, 2012) Woodstock is a horrible place to live. It is a racist town with families that have lived there for generations - probably former slave owners. It seems the incestious town is operated by children (now adults) who grew up in the town from the police department to local government. ...Read More

The best thing in town is Starbucks and the only claim to fame is the filming of Groundhog Day.

It is a small town with one major grocery chain, Walmart, one major pharmacy chain, a few decent restaurants and not much else to speak of.

The schools are not great and seems to have a good amount of poverty. Read Less
