Eagle, Idaho

When asked what makes living in Eagle so appealing, residents of this bedroom community share similar sentiments. One long-time local expressed it this way, "Eagle is one of the only places that successfully balances the small town "feel" with big city conveniences."

Lying just 8 miles west of Boise, Eagle has all the modern shopping amenities and services of a large metropolitan city at its disposal. However, Eagle itself touts a quieter landscape; tree lined streets and modest historic architecture tell tales of simpler times. Remnants of the city's humble start can be seen downtown, where buildings dating back to the early 1900's still stand in operation. Landmarks such as the town's first bank (now home to a locally owned - and neighborhood favorite - Italian restaurant) and a saloon era building, originally called "Orville Jackson's" drugstore, serve as daily reminders of this grass-roots community's early beginnings.

Like most other cities, Eagle has an art gallery, wineries, a museum and a library. It even has a seasonal Farmer's Market where locals gather to share their produce, crafts and one another's company; however, what makes Eagle uniquely different is the city's atmosphere. Genuine friendliness is evident. In fact, the entire area of Ada County (commonly referred to as the "Treasure Valley") has repeatedly been included in many top 10 lists including "Best Places to Live", "Best State for Business", "Best Place to Invest in Housing" and "Best State for Expected Job Growth" as reported by such big name media providers as CNN, Forbes and Sunset Magazine.
