Things to Do in Eagle, Idaho
Nestled between the Boise River and the foothills, Eagle, Idaho supports a scenic wildlife habitat woven into its manicured neighborhoods and historic downtown. Only a 15 minute drive from downtown Boise, and a perfect mix between rural and urban, Eagle has been called "Rurban," melding the best of both worlds into one charming location.
Within minutes from sipping wine on a riverside restaurant patio, you can be strolling through art galleries, attending an outdoor concert, or horsebackriding the trails. You really can do it all. And since Eagle is known for being uber family-friendly, you will find many parks, clubs, and fun activities the whole family can partake in together nearly every day of the week.
Like the outdoors?
Having close proximity to the river, greenbelt and the foothills makes Eagle a mecca for outdoor recreation. On any given day you will see people out running, cycling, walking their dogs and biking with their kids. The Boise River and numerous neighborhood ponds offer an easy getaway for fishing right out your back door. And if golfing is on your list of activities, Eagle is home to some of the top courses in Idaho.
A quick trip north on Highway 55 will lead you up the mountains for some wild rafting, ziplining, boating, fishing, camping, and hiking in less than an hour. And if winter sports is your calling, four nearby ski resorts await you, including the world-renowned Sun Valley Ski Resort. Check our Treasure Valley Outdoor guide for a complete list of camping, fishing and adventurous outdoor destinations.
Need to relax?
If the outdoor scene isn't your niche, don't worry. Eagle's arts and culture scene is buzzing, with high-end shopping, gourmet restaurants and a copious number of cozy coffee shops to warm up those crisp Autumn mornings.

And while you're wandering through the booths, pop in to Second Avenue to browse the latest finds, making sure to stop for a sweet treat at Sweet Valley Cookie Co. and other specialty shops nearby. Afterwards, relax with friends at Bardenay along the river, or take in some live music at the fun and hip WC Lounge.
