Best All Ages Hangout

From perusing the farmers market and enjoying live music in the summer to taking a stroll past the twinkling lights and having snowball fights in the winter, folks of all ages can find fun in Eau Claire’s Phoenix Park, voted Best All-Ages Hangout in the Valley for the sixth time in eight years. Action City (2402 Lorch Ave., Eau Claire) is the perfect spot for birthday parties, work events, or just an energetic afternoon where you get to feel like a kid again! Acoustic Café (505 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire) in third place is great for catching up with friends, doing homework, or listening to live music that ranges from jazz combos to cover bands. — Katy Hackworthy
