Best Place To Impress Out-of-town Guests

1st Place: Leinenkugel Brewery

2nd Place: Phoenix Park

3rd Place: EC downtown farmers market

The most difficult part of having guests is knowing how to entertain them. Luckily, the Valley has plenty to offer when hoping to impress out-of-towners. At the top of our list is Leinenkugel’s Brewery. The highlight of the brewery, which has been in Chippewa Falls since 1867, is the Leinie’s Tour. On the tour, which is offered year-round, visitors get to experience the brewing process and those who are 21+ can sample several tasty flavors. Coming in second is Phoenix Park. This beautiful park is right on the Chippewa River and has a landscape that lends itself to a variety of events including the Taste of the Valley, Open Air Festival of the Arts, and Sounds Like Summer Concert Series. Our third place winner, the Eau Claire Downtown Farmers Market, is several days a week (Saturday is biggest) from May to October, and offers a wide variety of food and plants, all from local growers and businesses. — EA
