A Day in the Life: Eagle, Idaho

Rolling hills in Idaho

The official motto of Eagle, Idaho is “Life, Done Right.” Given the richness and abundances of culture, leisure and adventure that the city has to offer, these three words definitely ring true!

Situated in the heart of Ada County just 10 miles northwest of Boise, Eagle delivers the timeless charm of small-town living with a touch of big city excitement. Let’s explore a sampling of things to do in a given day for Eagle residents. You might decide to give Ada County homes a closer look!

Rise and shine!

Kick off your morning by reeling in the catch of the day. The 100-mile long Boise River flows through Eagle, with bass, salmon, trout, whitefish and catfish all populating its well-stocked waters. If you’d prefer to start your day off with a brisk hike or bike ride to get your blood flowing, there’s no shortage of scenic trails and family-friendly parks to stretch your legs.

Enjoy an active morning.

No matter what season it is, you’ll have options aplenty for enjoying the outdoors in Eagle. During the summer months, you can tee it up at one of the 20+ golf courses located in Ada County or go white water rafting down the Payette River if you’re in the mood for something more adventurous. In the wintertime, you can go skiing, snowboarding, tubing or give ice skating a try at the nationally recognized Idaho IceWorld. Cross-country skiing is a popular activity among locals as well.

Explore your community in the afternoon.

After hitting the links or slopes, you can take advantage of any number of the free classes and activities the City of Eagle offers its residents. If you’d like to further exercise your mind by checking out some educational attractions, the Children’s Museum of Idaho, Warhawk Air Museum and Discovery Center of Idaho are all close by while Arboretum Park features dozens of plant types for the botany enthusiast in your household. From May through October, the downtown-staged Eagle Saturday Market features local arts and crafts along with local produce, herbs and flowers, woodwork and specialty food items. Tea time at Chateau de Fleurs is also an option, as is engaging in a good old fashioned shopping spree.

Dine out on the town.

If you’re a fan of gourmet food and unique culinary experiences, Eagle has plenty to offer you. From classic American fare to Italian fine dining to Mediterranean cuisine to fresh Japanese sushi, your taste buds can journey around the world and back without leaving the city limits!

Take in a game or a show.

Eagle residents have options galore when it comes to nighttime activities. Presented by the city’s department of parks and recreation, the popular Gazebo Concert Series is staged for free at Heritage Park during the summertime with several other regional venues regularly showcasing musical talent. A downtown cinema shows the latest Hollywood movies while live theater is also available for you to enjoy year round. Prefer your entertainment to be unscripted? Professional baseball and ice hockey teams call Ada County home, as do the NCAA’s Boise State Broncos.
