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 think Eagle, Idaho is an amazing city for family life and growing up in since it’s super friendly and extremely safe. Although the night life isn’t very great, there are usually job opportunities in the food business. It’s not that diverse and pretty conservative. Good scenery of the mountains and foothills though. I think if someone wants to retire or raise a family, the real estate is amazing with both traditional and modern homes at affordable prices. Overall, a great city to live in.
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.
