Best Place to Take a Selfie

The Phoenix Park Bridge (in Phoenix Park, obviously), overlooks the Eau Claire River, offers gorgeous views of the Pablo Center, Haymarket Plaza, and the rivers. It even glows in the dark, lighting up the river in rainbows when the sun goes down. In second place, The Brewing Projeckt’s Mural (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire) showcases three different opportunities for selfies: a midnight vibe, the smokestack, and vibrant rays for a burst of color. Big Falls County Park (600 Big Falls Forest Road, Eau Claire) is the perfect natural escape. The Eau Claire River runs through this park, surrounded by beautiful forests and rock formations, making it a prime picture-taking location. –Kelly Carlson
