American Restaurant
$
“This is our favorite spot for the best of the classic plate of American food, a never ending cup of coffee, good service, tasty food, and lots of menu items. It's always bustling, always busy, you'll get a great big plate of food for a great price, and probably leave with a take home box to eat later. We love their breakfasts, especially, and it's a Larson family tradition to go here for breakfast on our birthdays. We call it AFR, and the owner always welcomes us by name. :)”

Park
“A large park wedged between Eau Claire and Altoona. It's great for families with children of all ages. Dry and wet play spaces throughout the park, including a dry play area, a splash pad, a shallow river and some sandy front. You can grab lunch or coffee from a nearby restaurant while you're there too! Enjoy music in the park throughout the summer!”
