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, things to do in Eau Claire cover all kinds of interests - outdoors, art, music, history, food and so much more.

With two rivers that converge in the heart of downtown, there are plenty of opportunities to paddle/tube the water trail or bike along the Chippewa River State Trail. If you’re looking to immerse yourself in art, plan your trip around a show at Pablo Center at the Confluence downtown, where you can simultaneously check out their multiple art galleries and installations.

We have museums, the largest sculpture tour in the nationparks that make for the perfect day of entertainment for the kids (and the kids-at-heart),  and 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.
