Things To Do in Eau Claire
You want your visit to Eau Claire, Wisconsin to be unlike any other Midwest trip you’ve ever taken. Located just 90 miles east of Minneapolis, Eau Claire, Wisconsin has things to do for the outdoor adventurer, the history buff, the indie music lover, the art connoisseur and the foodie.
With two rivers that converge in the heart of downtown, there are plenty of opportunities to paddle the water trail or bike along the Chippewa River State Trail. Get hands-on with local artists, chefs and athletes by signing up for an Eau Claire Signature Experience. If you’re looking to immerse yourself in art, plan your trip around a show at Pablo Center at the Confluence in downtown, where you can simultaneously check out their multiple art galleries and installations.
We have museums, outdoor sculptures, and parks that make for the perfect day of entertainment for the kids (and the kids-at-heart), not to mention all of the pet-friendly things you can do with your four-legged friend. And don’t worry beer-lovers, we have breweries that will keep your interest piqued and your tastebuds satisfied. Midwest may be best, but Eau Claire is unlike any other.
