Eagle Reviews

I think that Eagle is a very nice and safe place to live. People are friendly (with the exception of some on the road, which you get with any place) and the area is clean. I've lived in Eagle 13 years now and have always felt safe. There are nice schools and parks and things to do here. The only complaint would be that with so many people moving here from California, etc, there is a lot of traffic!

I lived in Eagle, Idaho for 18 years, and I loved every minute of it! The high school is great with awesome sports teams. I always felt safe, especially in the main town area. The neighborhoods are always friendly.
Eagle is a growing community. We raised our daughter here. We have appreciated the choices in education and the small community feel. We have been able to enjoy country living in the foothills while being minutes from downtown Eagle and only 25 minutes from the state capital city. People here are friendly and there are events in downtown. We appreciate that there is a community center here, versus the sprawl in many areas. There is not a lot to do in the winter time as far as community events, but living in Idaho is all about making the most of the outdoors.
