Restaurants and Parks Make it Easy to Live Here
Just 10 miles northwest of Idaho’s capital, Eagle, Idaho, captures small town charm in a historical downtown and peaceful neighborhoods. Eagle has grown rapidly in the past 20 years, transforming from a small farming community into one of southwestern Idaho’s most popular places to live. We can see why, too!
There’s so much to like about Eagle, whether it’s the historic downtown or the quiet lifestyle. Combine that with the mild weather and the Boise Mountains just minutes down the road, and it’s no wonder people have been flocking to Eagle.
As locals, we can’t help but be in awe of how Eagle has grown. But no matter how big it gets, Eagle’s charm will always be that it is unapologetically quaint. If you haven’t explored Eagle in a while, check out some of our favorite hotspots!

Recreation in Eagle
There are an abundance of parks for families to explore, and on any given summer night you can hear the distinctive ringing of bats hitting baseballs or barks from happy dogs chasing tennis balls. But to really escape and experience a unique spot in Idaho’s landscape, you have to travel to the western edge of the city to explore Eagle Island State Park.
While most of the Boise metropolitan region is surrounded by farmland and rolling foothills, all 545 acres Eagle Island State Park sits nestled in the middle of the metro region, transporting visitors to grasslands and prairies. Tall grass, low trees, and marshy landscapes invite tourists, hikers, horseback riders, and bicyclists to lap in serenity while exploring this flat, quiet park.
But before you get too relaxed, don’t forget to have some extra fun, too! Eagle Island State Park is home to a swimming beach – complete with a waterslide — and picnic areas. Invite the whole family or your neighbors out for a relaxing day in the park without ever leaving Eagle!
