I have lived in Eagan my entire life and have seen tremendous growth in the city! I really like that it has just about everything you could need in terms of shopping, restaurants, schools, and recreation. It is also only about 5-10 min away from MOA, which is a plus! They just recently built their own outlet mall, which is beautiful. Besides shopping, they have activities for people who enjoy other things. Lebanon hills park is located in Eagan. It is a HUGE park and an absolutely beautiful place where you can hike, run, walk, swim, paddle board, ski, and much more. Eagan also has bowling, water parks, and yoga studios. One thing I would like to see improve about Eagan is their library- it is very small compared to some other libraries and not very many quiet rooms to go and study. Overall, I love Eagan!

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!
Since moving to Eagan a couple years ago, I have fallen in love with the city. Eagan is a very family friendly community. The number of stores, jobs, and places to live are endless. The community is very taken care of and living in this town makes me feel comfortable and safe. For all of the places that I have gone to in Eagan, the places have been satisfactory. The commute to my school, hometown and just general stores is above average and manageable to drive around. I enjoy all of the places to walk my dog and bike around in the town.
