Chippewa Falls

Chippewa Falls is in Chippewa County, part of the Chippewa Valley, just a tad to the north of Eau Claire.  Together Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire form a metropolitan area, and among other things, share an airport. Technically, this valley is a part of the drainage basin of the Chippewa River and its tributaries.  It’s a small city, but it’s downtown is bustling and alive, with many shops and boutiques. it hosts the well-known Leinekugel Brewery, and it has a great park and zoo. I fell off my diet at the Chippewa BValey Candy Store and fell in love with Sokup’s Market.
