Just under a half-hour drive from Eau Claire is Osseo, WI, a sweet town just overflowing with the midwestern charm that is found all across the state of Wisconsin. The city of Osseo offers a variety of scenic sights and attractions in the rolling hills of northeastern Trempealeau County and hits the nail right on the head when it comes to small-town hospitality. Don't believe us? See for yourselves with a day trip over to Osseo! Here are some places you must visit to get a taste of what Osseo is really all about!
Buena Vista Scenic Overlook
Before you jump out of the car ready to take on the day in the city, this scenic overlook cannot be overlooked! Buena Vista is on the west side of Highway 53 just 5 miles south of Osseo. The scenic overlooks include a monument that is dedicated to Nicholas Bourlier De La Chavelle, a spirited young man who decided to leave society and live in a cave in Osseo in 1865. It's as if nature created the perfect window here to see those rolling hills we mentioned before and the farmlands that make Wisconsin America's Dairyland.
