Think Eau Claire!

Eau Claire, Wisconsin, could probably lay claim to being “The Indie Capital of the Midwest,” but trademarking that would be far too corporate a move for this independent-minded university town. Instead, Eau Claire, located at the confluence of the Eau Claire and Chippewa Rivers, goes its own way and encourages everyone who visits to come along for the ride.
