Body & Soul: A Guide to Woodstock & Saugerties 

Page 3 of 3

In their own ways, Saugerties and Woodstock exemplify the mixture of art, commerce, and community that has made the Hudson Valley a distinctly alluring place to live and explore.

She believes that the area's expanding success can be attributed to its willingness to simultaneously respect the past and welcome the future: "There are families who have been here for generations, but newer families are being embraced, newer businesses are finding a home here, and we want that."
