Best All-Ages Hangout

For years, Irvine Park in Chippewa Falls has been the home of the fantastic Christmas Village, dozens of animals, and enough nature to satisfy even the most outdoorsy of Chippewa Valley folk. Eau Claire’s Phoenix Park has also established itself as a favorite family hotspot. And when families want to have some fun inside, Action City (5150 Fairview Drive, Eau Claire) is the destination for all ages to get together and enjoy everything from go-karts to trampolines to axe throwing. –Parker Reed
