Stylish, Small-Town Appeal

Tucked away in the corner of the Valley, up against the Boise foothills and along the Boise River, you’ll find the charming town of Eagle.

There is a lot of history to the town of Eagle, dating back to the 1860s. Several of the historic buildings in the downtown area date back to the early 1900s, giving Eagle its allure and old-town feel. What was once belittled as a swamp area in the 1970s is now home to some of the most expensive riverfront properties in Southwest Idaho.

Eagle has come a long way, growing from a town of just 350 residents when it was incorporated in 1971 to almost 30,000 today. Smart city planning has allowed for Eagle to maintain its character while catering to the needs of the growing population.

The biggest appeal of Eagle is the small-town feel, especially in the historic downtown area. Old-style streetlights line the downtown corridor, which boasts restaurants, specialty boutiques, and some great places to meet up with friends for happy hour.

The older part of Eagle showcases mature, treelined streets; homes on large lots; and beautiful, familyfriendly neighborhoods and parks. As Eagle continues to grow, more first-class dining establishments, housing developments, retail shops, and healthcare facilities have given people even more reason to make Eagle home.

Recreation Abounds

Whether your type of recreation is on two wheels or two legs, in the foothills or on the golf course, along the river or downtown, you’ll find it within Eagle city limits.

The 200-acre Eagle Sports Complex and Bike Park is one of the largest in the country. It includes a BMX track, world-class mountain bike trails, a skate park, basketball courts, and an inline hockey rink. Eagle is also home to two of the Treasure Valley’s best golf courses. Banbury Golf Course has been rated in the top ten golf courses in Idaho by Golf Digest for the past eight years. The 18-hole championship course Eagle Hills is Eagle’s original golf course, offering mature trees, rolling fairways, and challenging water features against the backdrop of the Boise foothills.

Eagle Island State Park is its own recreational epicenter with zip lines, a water slide, sandy beaches, horseback riding trails, and more.

The town’s beautifully maintained parks have some of the best splash pads in the Valley. And the community events will keep your social calendar full all year long.

Yes, a Class All Its Own

In addition to all these wonderful qualities, quiet, cozy Eagle is just an eight-mile drive to the hustle and bustle of downtown Boise. This makes a night out on the town or shopping in the “big city” fun and easy to do.

The country setting; amazing people; great schools; safe, family-oriented neighborhoods; plentiful recreation; and many social events are just a few of the many reasons Eagle is one of the most desirable towns in the Boise area. Come experience for yourself why Eagle is in a class all its own.

Built for Business

Meridian is booming with rapidly growing companies, organizations, and industries. Careful planning and development between the City of Meridian and Idaho State University has resulted in Meridian’s Medical Core. This has set Meridian on the road to becoming one of the nation’s elite health-and-science industry hubs. Meridian is home to Blue Cross of Idaho, St. Luke’s full-service acute-care campus, ISU’s Meridian Health Science Center, and Idaho’s first medical school – Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) – which started instruction in 2018. The addition of ICOM to Meridian’s medical core is expected to attract a wealth of new businesses, employ more than 90 senior instructors, and train physicians to care for people in a five-state region.

Along with the health-and-science industry boom, Meridian is the center of retail and commercial development. Hundreds of retail merchants, professional services, and recreation venues are seeing the value of doing business in Meridian. It’s easy to attract good employees with its convenient access to Interstate 84 and Highway 55, the proximity to outdoor recreation, low cost of living, excellent schools, and beautiful neighborhoods.

Meridian is a thriving community, centrally located in the Treasure Valley. It’s easy to see why it is the fastest growing city in the state of Idaho.
