As a relatively recent transplant to Chippewa Falls, my husband and I have been pleasantly surprised by the number of activities in the community. But, when I take a couple of seconds to really think about that, we shouldn’t be. We purchased Pleasant View Bed & Breakfast in 2014 because of the location, not only is the B&B located on Lake Wissota, but the Chippewa River runs right through the heart of Chippewa Falls. The water provides for the usual outdoor activities, such as hiking, boating, fishing, skiing and swimming. More importantly, Chippewa Falls has a dynamic business community that is engaged in community service, both locally and internationally. It is those business leaders that are involved in the Rotary Club, the Lions Club, Kiwanis Club, etc., which have a significant impact on the community. You will find some examples of those philanthropic events in the list below. Chippewa Falls also has a great Center for the Arts which is always providing wonderful entertainment for all ages. Remember, we all work hard, we need to take care of ourselves and be sure to have some fun so we can relax, rest and rejuvenate. This allows us to be fully engaged in all we do, not only for our spouses and family but also at work.
