Thinking of Relocating to Woodstock? Here's 5 Reasons Why You Should!
Whether you’re looking to relocate because of work, or you’re in search of a quieter lifestyle, in this article we will explore 5 reasons why relocating to Woodstock is a good idea.
Proximity to Other Major Cities
Since Woodstock is approximately 128km from Toronto, 43km from London, and 45kms to Kitchener, it makes an ideal location for young professionals looking to broaden their job opportunities, or for those interested in visiting more bustling areas, then coming home to a calmer lifestyle. If you choose to live in one of Drewlo’s newly built townhomes, you can then also enjoy the benefit of being conveniently located near the 401 so you can commute more efficiently.
With an approximate population of 41,000 people, Woodstock has plenty of local shops and vendors to explore. For those seeking a freshly brewed cup of coffee, hand-made specialty chocolates, or natural body and skin care products, Woodstock has local businesses eager to introduce you to their products.
Attractions & Entertainment
Whether you enjoy historic tours, artful adventures, or outdoor walks, Woodstock has an attraction to appeal to your interest. While travelling throughout Woodstock, you can find Oxford’s first craft brewery where you can enjoy a local drink, a three-floor art gallery where classes can be taken, and The Historic Museum Square which is home to Theatre Woodstock and The Woodstock Museum. In the summertime you can also enjoy numerous quirky festivals such as Cowapolooza and Dairy Capital Cheese Fest.
The Scenic Views
Whether you want to go for a historic walk where you can see the skyline complete with the old jail or you want to visit Woodstock’s Pittock Reservoir to go birding, there are numerous trails that you can take to reach your scenic destinations. If you’re feeling outdoorsy, but don’t want to put on your hiking boots, then you can enjoy a peaceful stroll through Southside Park where you'll find a luscious garden, a babbling brook, and plenty of green space to sit down and enjoy a picnic.
The Public Library is now Netflix Famous
The public library in Woodstock offers many services in addition to checking out books. There are scheduled programs for teens, homework help for school aged-children, and book clubs for adults to name a few. One of the most buzzworthy services the library has offered, however, is their building to the production crew of Locke & Key. For season 3 of Locke & Key, the film crew used Woodstock’s Public Library as a scene for exterior and interior shots.
