As your group plans to experience Eau Claire in the fall, we have a list of things to do and places to go during your trip. This itinerary will have you soaking in the crisp fall air, walking on crunchy leaves, and taking in the natural smells of autumn in Eau Claire. If you don't see something you like for the group, don't fret; our itineraries are 100% customizable. Contact Dana Crosson, our Group Sales Manager, at dana@visiteauclaire.com or at 715-829-2685 if you need help planning your group's visit or if you have any questions. 

While many of these places are open and operating in the midst of COVID-19, they operate with safety in mind and follow best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While enjoying Eau Claire, we recommend to wear a mask, wash hands, and practice social distancing.

As you travel between stops, take in the beauty of fall in Eau Claire on the route! You'll find autumn colors around every turn with our fall color routes mapped out for you. There are even a few bonus stops along the way the group can make to take in some of Eau Claire's most scenic views. Don't forget some of Eau Claire's Signature Experiences; they will make your group's visit to Eau Claire one for the books!

Dells Mill Museum: Learn about the history behind the Dells Mill and capture your own photo of one of the most photographed sites in Wisconsin.
