Most Beautiful Spot

Nature’s beauty surrounds you at Big Falls County Park near Fall Creek. Whether you are looking for a sandy beach, a hike through the woods, or the scenic waterfalls, they are all in one place. Take time for some fishing or canoeing. Phoenix Park, a green oasis in downtown Eau Claire, is the home of a farmers market and much more. If you’re looking for peace and tranquility, you’ll find it at Rod & Gun Park in Eau Claire. The cozy spot is only 36 acres, but it sits on the shore of Half Moon Lake and features eight ponds —  the perfect place for a lazy picnic. — Diana Peterson
