Best Thing

Naming the Best Thing in the Valley is a tough assignment. How could you ever choose just three?! Our readers came together to pick a repeat winner: the lights on the Phoenix Park Bridge. Nothing brings more joy than being mesmerized by a beautiful light show, right in our backyards each night no less! The Pablo Center at the Confluence (128 Graham Ave., Eau Claire) takes second, hosting the best performances in the best setting around. Lastly, it wouldn’t be the Chippewa Valley if we didn’t mention our love for biking. Our endless bike trails offer miles and miles of recreational fun. Grab your bike and explore the beauty of our home. –Kelly Carlson
