"An overnight stop on a long road-trip" Eau Claire by Bwana_Brown
Eau Claire Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 8 photos
Although it had taken us three long days of driving to reach Eau Claire from New Brunswick, Canada we had settled into a nice routine of cruise-control on the American Interstate highway system. By mid-October, the long winter nights are starting to set in, so 10-hours a day is about all you can squeeze out of it before the numerous deer begin to dart out unexpectedly while you are at full tilt - just not worth the risk.
I had spent a few days in Milwaukee, Wisconsin a few years before on business, but this was our first trip through the western part of the state. The landscape was quite impressive, with its glacially carved stone formations, but we were a bit put-off by the numerous garish water-slide theme parks and the odd casino that have plunked themselves down beside the highway in this unique wilderness area. However, I guess that is to be expected, since this has been a prime American tourist area for over 100 years!
At the end of the day, we had a fantastic meal and a beautiful sleep!
- Pros:Countryside well worth checking out
- Cons:A major tourist destination with prices to accompany in 'season'
- In a nutshell:Eau Claire treated us well
I must admit that I had never before heard of this spectacular natural attraction located in western Wisconsin! After... more travel advice
