Best Tour / Tourist Attraction

Leinenkugel Brewing Co. (124 E. Elm St., Chippewa Falls) takes the prize this year as the best tour/tourist attraction. The business has some of the richest history in the area, brewing beer for the past 150 years. Also in Chippewa Falls is the 300-acre Irvine Park and Zoo (125 Bridgewater Ave., Chippewa Falls). Take a tour of the Sunny Valley Schoolhouse or Pioneer Norwegian Log Home or simply enjoy the park’s scenic beauty, wildlife, and history. Finally, journey through downtown Eau Claire to see all the wonderful art on display to the public as part of the ongoing outdoor attraction, Sculpture Tour Eau Claire. –Jen Ekblad
