When Ben and I moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin in 2013, we fell totally in love with slow-paced living, the beautiful scenery, and the way our community comes together for weekly events every summer. Once place we can’t get enough of is Phoenix Park! Phoenix park is a beautiful park located on the Chippewa River, beside our Downtown. It’s honestly one of the most stunning places I’ve ever visited — and I feel so lucky to call Phoenix Park our go-to place for Date Night!
In summer, Ben and I find ourselves visiting Phoenix Park at least twice per week. On a typical Thursday, we pack up our picnic basket and a blanket, watch the sunset, and listen to Music in the Park. At Music in the Park, musicians from near and far perform, and food vendors bring pizza, popcorn, and ice cream! The entire park is filled with people, and there is an overall sense of relaxation and excitement for the weekend ahead. (We also play a mean game of UNO!)
Every Saturday morning, Phoenix Park is home to the Farmers Market! It’s my absolute favorite thing to do in Eau Claire. It means the weekend has arrived and that Ben and I will have our weekly coffee date! Once again, it’s the perfect place for me to swoon over the beautiful scenery, to go for a walk, and to just relax and enjoy our city!
Although we’ve been in Eau Claire since 2013, I still consider us new to Eau Claire; we’re always learning about new places to go, new things to see, and new events to attend. One great way to get to know events in our city is through Eventbrite. Eventbrite offers a variety of services for people who want to host or attend local events; it’s user-friendly for everyone, it allows attendees pay for tickets or admission online, and it’s free for free events! What could be better?
Although we’re new to our city, we love it more than ever! So, if you’re ever in Eau Claire, I recommend visiting Phoenix Park — and taking a peek at other great local events using Eventbrite!
