Best Neighborhood

The Eastside Hill is a six-time winner in this poll, with its cozy homes, proximity to downtown, and amazing views, nestled in the bluffs overlooking the Chippewa and Eau Claire rivers. The Third Ward displays Eau Claire history at its finest with its grand and elegant houses. The West Side neighborhood is home to a blend of private residences and college rentals. It’s quiet, yet close to downtown and is home to DeLong Middle School. — Diana Peterson
