What Bert Has To Say About Eau Claire Metro Area

Eau Claire lies along I-94 about 60 miles east of the Minnesota border and Mississippi River and 80 miles east of Minneapolis-St. Paul. A former logging town with more diversified industry today, Eau Claire is a gateway to wilderness and recreation areas to the north and northeast. The attractive town has older buildings and shady streets along a graceful bend in the Chippewa River. The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire adds about 10,000 students and some college town flavor. The outskirts, mostly above the valley, are quite spread out with a number of light manufacturing firms and retail developments mainly south and east of downtown.
