If you are looking for a small suburb, mini mouse footsteps quiet city, Eagan is the place to be. It is a gorgeous city full of culture and diversity. Located in Minnesota, south of the Saint Paul area. Eagan is known as the 14th best city to live in Minnesota since 2012. Eagan has a lot of open land to explore if you're a outdoors adventurist. If you love football it has the Vikings training stadium being built which is open to the community to watch the vikings practice seasonally. Eagan Is a family oriented community, its a home warming space. Neighboring Eagan is Bloomington, where the Mall of America Is located, which is one of the worlds largest malls. Eagan is a Fantastic place to live and grow a family! There are many resources and conveniently close shopping areas,and many public schools and even Colleges such as Rasmussen College. I love living here!

Eagan really has everything! Since moving here in 2015, we have seen Eagan grow to become a city that invests in its community by bringing in a wide variety of business to ensure everything from gas to shopping malls to grocery/restaraunt are readily available.
Talk to any Minnesotan and they will tell you how great the state is. Those who have the privilege of growing up in Eagan, Minnesota, will do that same. I attended public school starting in first grade at Pinewood Elementary, went to Dakota Hills for middle school and Eagan High School for high school. The friends I met, the teachers I had and the groups I participated in are all unforgettable. My summertime activities included going to Summer in the Park through the Parks and Rec program, having a summer pass to Cascade Bay, visiting the library, and playing soccer and basketball through the EAA program. As I grew older, I was on the EHS cross country and track team. Now as a 24 year old, I teach yoga at the Eagan Community Center. Eagan is a safe and healthy city with an activity or program for everyone. As you drive down, you will always see someone walking their dog or going on a run. There will always be room for Eagan, Minnesota in my heart.
