Welcome to Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, located in western Wisconsin approximately 70 miles from the Minnesota/Wisconsin border. Here, the charm of small-town living is anchored by a vibrant and growing business community. Within minutes of town are gorgeous state parks where you can enjoy the great outdoors and abundant wildlife. Come here to live, work, or vacation, and enjoy the good life, Wisconsin-style.
Main Street charm isn’t just a catch phrase in Chippewa Falls. In fact, the only canned thing about our community is Leinenkugel’s, the infamous beer that’s been brewed here for five generations. Visitors vacation here from all over the globe to enjoy more than this iconic beer. They come here for our bounty of recreation pleasures, from biking or skiing through the woods to paddling or fishing on the water, and from cozy wineries to our free 318-acre Irvine Park and Zoo.
