Eagle carved its place in history in the hubbub.

Welcome to Eagle

A family-friendly suburban community with access to Boise

Nestled in the Boise Foothills, Eagle is replete with wide, tree-lined streets that unfurl into charming suburban streets bordered by the rolling mountains and forests that bound the community. The locale is ideal for families looking to place some roots in a neighborly environment without losing that connection to the city.
Eagle carved its place in history in the hubbub of the gold rush. When gold was discovered in the Boise Basin, many settlers rushed to find their fortune. Some travelers, however, saw the true gold of Treasure Valley: the area itself. After sowing some 150 acres, Truman C. Catlin laid the groundwork for what is now Eagle, Idaho so named for the sheer number of bald eagles spotted on Catlin’s property.
In the present day, Eagle is home to many styles ranging from Craftsman to Mediterranean-inspired villas. The suburb is a premier destination for new and luxurious custom homes at a significantly more affordable price than can be found in places such as California. This lends itself perfectly to the clean, peaceful community feel that so many Eagle residents are proud to call home.

What to Love

  • Mellow pastoral vibes with proximity to Boise
  • Gateway Parks, a winter park for skiing, snowboarding, and more
  • Well-lit, family-oriented neighborhoods

People and Lifestyle

Unlike major metropolitan areas, Eagle is full of kid-friendly neighborhoods that allow for walking, biking, running, and more without worry. The small-town feel of this burgeoning suburb is the perfect marriage between serene living and keeping your finger on the pulse, as Idaho’s capital is only a 40-minute drive away.
That family-friendly appeal means Eagle is the optimal place to find work-life balance and raise a family without the cramped style of city living. Many of Eagle’s residents are either Idaho natives or Californian transplants in search of a quieter, more relaxed community. Most of the residents hold white-collar jobs, making it equally enticing for professionals as it is for families.

Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment

Visit Eagle’s downtown to find soft-smelling green spaces interspersed with excellent dining, shopping, and entertainment options for any resident family, empty-nester, retiree, or young professional.
Take advantage of the highly walkable Eagle River to partake in some shopping, as Eagle River has everything necessary for a great day out, from Lyn’s Antiques, where you’ll never know what treasure awaits you, to Fountain Blu, the perfect place to snag a cozy fleece or buy home decor to give your home a distinctly Pacific West feel.
After a day out spent shopping, enjoy some resplendent food at any one of Eagle’s numerous dining establishments, like Coyne’s Restaurant and Bar, where they emphasize connections and experience and excellently sourced beef. Perhaps you’d prefer Bardenay, the nation’s very first restaurant distillery, or maybe Rembrandt’s, a charming restaurant for any occasion.

Things to Do

Surrounded by woods and expansive landscapes, Eagle is no stranger to the appeal of the outdoors and boasts occasions and entertainment for the whole family.
Stop by Eagle Fun Days, a summer festival intended for parents and kids that has the privilege of kicking off Treasure Valley’s festival season. Also unmissable is Eagle’s Concert Gazebo Series, a perfect opportunity to sink your sandals into the grass and let the local music wash over you under the evening sky.
On the other hand, Heritage Park and Gazebo is sure to be a hit due to the fresh air and water system it provides on a hot summer day. If that’s not enough for your outdoor adventure, just head over to Eagle Island State Park. With dozens of activities ranging from horseshoes to boating to horseback riding, Eagle Island is a favorite destination for any Eagle resident.
