Best Kept Secret

If you find yourself in need of bulk baking goods, seasonal produce, or even a wind chime, Weaver’s Country Store (E13855 U.S. Highway 12, Fall Creek), is the place to go. This unique store offers wallet-friendly prices on staples for baking, cooking, and canning, plus an assortment of handmade, useful items. Eau Claire Cheese & Deli (formerly Nelson’s Cheese Factory, 1636 Harding Ave., Eau Claire) is a must-stop for anyone in need of delicious hot or cold sandwiches, local cheese, and what could be some of the best prices for kids’ ice cream cones anywhere. Worth a hike is the Devil’s Punchbowl (410th Street, Menomonie), a water-carved canyon just outside Menomonie. — Emily Kuhn
