Posted: May 15, 2015 Eau Claire a finalist for 'Best Town Ever'
Eau Claire residents have the opportunity to show the nation how great their city really is.
Eau Claire is one of 64 U.S. towns in a tournament-style contest competing to be named "The Best Town Ever" by Outside Magazine. Eau Claire defeated Evanston, Illinois last week, but is locked in a tight race with Rapid City, South Dakota.
If Eau Claire advances, it would face either Yellow Springs, Ohio or Rochester, Minnesota. The winner is picked by the number of votes, and anyone is allowed to vote once per round.
