The results are in! You voted for some of the best stuff the Chippewa Valley has to offer for families. Check it out ...

The wait is over. Last summer, we asked you – the fine readers of Chippewa Valley Family – to pick your favorite family stuff from throughout the area. We provided a whole range of questions concerning family life here in the Chippewa Valley. You were able to add your own responses on which everyone else was able to vote.

We hope Family Favorites can serve as a guide to the area’s many fantastic places and activities. We see it as a jumping off point for trying new things and getting the most from your life here in the Chippewa Valley.

So, thank you. Voting in this poll means you care about this place. And caring about this place makes it a richer, more exciting place to live and raise a family – for all of us. 

OK, enough talk. Please enjoy the results of our 2018 Family Favorites reader poll!
