100 Things to Do in Eau Claire This Summer

It won’t be long before summer is upon us in Wisconsin. I’ve been busy making itineraries and drawing up road trip maps to fill the three months with as much of Eau Claire character. Fortunately, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire published a fantastic list of 100 things to do in Eau Claire this summer. I’ve added close to 20 more things to do just since reading the list. Five of my favorite activities from last summer even made it to the list: UWEC's summer cinema series (above), Chalkfest, the Eau Claire Farmer’s Market, the Artist’s Market, and various local wine tastings. If you’re looking for a great place to start looking for ideas of what to do this summer, then head on over to the list and check it out for yourself.
