People & Lifestyle

Eagle has experienced enormous growth since it was incorporated as a city in 1971. The population has grown from just 350 to more than 30,000. This increase in Eagle’s population has been accompanied by a similar growth in the amenities this attractive city offers. Careful city planning has preserved Eagle’s inviting small-town character while adding lots of stylish new shopping and dining options. Eagle’s proximity to Boise means you’re always within easy reach of many more places to enjoy great food, drinks, and retail.
