Review Eagan
Eagan, MN is a pleasant city that combines both city and park elements to create a residency where everyone is close to a park or nature trail. It's developed enough where it provides public places for social activities, but there are plenty of trees and green areas for an aesthetically pleasing place to live. You don't have to leave the city to get a park or shopping outlet. There are also plenty of events that Eagan hosts to bring the community together. While there have been a few criminal incidences as in any city, Eagan is generally safe. As a consumer, the only thing I would improve is upgrading the Target to a Super Target.
I've lived in eagan for 18 years, since I was born. It's a great city to raise a family in, there are lots of activities for all ages. It's within close proximity to the Twin Cities and Mall of America as well which is nice. I attended school in ISD 191 and loved it, it provided me with many academic opportunities and a wonderful education. The city just added two new shopping centers Twin Cities Premium outlets and a new complex with a Hy-Vee, Hobby Lobby, Sierra trading post, Ulta beauty, Home goods, and more stores are currently being built. There are a ton of wonderful restaurants and plenty of companies hiring.
