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 crystal clear Eau Claire and Chippewa Rivers, goes its own way and encourages everyone who visits to come along for the ride. Locals stage huge music fe...stivals, devote resources to public art, honor the wit of local writers, egg on chefs and brew masters to bring it on, and host sports competitions happily outside the mainstream. A thriving downtown gives way to a hip uptown, both surrounded by a natural beauty that inspires creativity. Eau Claire is where farm kids grow up to be artists and entrepreneurs. Where alternative is a positive. Where attitude is more important than age. Where hospitality is legit. Where originality is celebrated. In other words, indie.
