2 More Magazines Hype Eau Claire in Advance of Eaux Claires Fest

Two more magazines have profiled Eau Claire (like here and here and here), this time targeting people who'll be in town for the Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival (June 16 & 17). The big music fest has drawn a lot of new attention to the area, causing some publications to look closer at the Chippewa Valley as a travel destination, and these are no exception. 

Milwaukee Magazine's profile, straightforwardly titled "Heading to the Eaux Claires Music Festival? Here's Your Guide to Eau Claire," does a ton of name dropping, plugging The French Press, Milwaukee Burger Company, The Classic Garage, Bijou Bistro, Leinenkugel's Brewery, Autumn Harvest Winery, UW-Eau Claire, the Chippewa River State Trail, the Eau Claire Downtown Farmers Market, and The Oxbow Hotel. They even list a number of non-Eaux Claires events happening that weekend.

Meanwhile, Madison Magazine featured Eau Claire in its post 7 Wisconsin Area Road Trips, mentioning the Acoustic Café, Sculpture Tour Eau Claire, the Eau Claire Downtown Farmers Market, the Chippewa River State Trail, Northwest Park, Lazy Monk Brewing, The Brewing Projekt, Lowes Creek County Park, Infinity Beverages, and more. 

Seems like articles like these have been popping up more and more – and there's sure to be more on the way.
