Best Tour / Tourist Attraction

For 150 years, six generations of Leinenkugels have perfected their brewing craft at the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. and Leinie Lodge (124 E. Elm St., Chippewa Falls). Take a tour, sample high-quality beers, and then head to nearby Irvine Park for a hike. Kids love the red barn and petting zoo while older adults enjoy learning about the Sunny Valley School House and the Norwegian Log Home. The Sculpture Tour Eau Claire is an ongoing public art gallery spread throughout the city. Vote for your favorite masterpiece —  and hey, if you find one you can’t live without, they are all for sale. — Diana Peterson
