In comparison to the rest of the Treasure Valley, Eagle is one of the most luxurious cities you could ever choose. ‘Why?’ you may ask. Well, this is simply because it has some of the best neighborhoods in the valley. There are neighborhoods with their own private lakes and even some with houses of unusually large size. One of the best neighborhoods that Eagle has to offer (though it doesn’t offer a private lake) is the Eaglecreek subdivision. This awesome subdivision is located in northwestern Eagle, Idaho and is right across the street from Eagle High School. It is a large and well built development with over a hundred homes and building lots. They range in size but the approximate average is around 2,000 square feet. They have anywhere from 3 to 5 bedrooms and will have around 2 bathrooms each. This combination of space and rooms makes it perfect for any sort of indoor activity. These homes are build on an about a quarter of an acre with fenced backyards and well trimmed lawns. They are both one and two story homes that are both ranch and craftsman style in design. Their exteriors are made up of stucco and stone with designer siding on some houses.
Now, it isn’t just amazing homes that Eaglecreek has to offer. This subdivision is also home to a large community center. Located in the middle of the neighborhood, this community center is equipped with a swimming pool, playground, and open grassy field. Designed for the resident’s enjoyment, the community center is made to please. It is a great place to enjoy a relaxing afternoon, get some exercise, and just enjoy the open air. However, when residents venture outside of the neighborhood, they can also enjoy all the comforts of Eagle, Meridian, and Boise. These comforts include plenty of shopping, movie theaters, businesses, and so on. Not to mention a great downtown area on the east end of Boise.

Eagle itself only represents 20,000 of the half a million that live in the Treasure Valley, but, despite that fact, it is still a very influential city in the valley’s economics. It is located just north of the border between Boise and Meridian which allows its residents to enjoy the amenities of both those cities. Eagle may be able to access the exciting urban world of the state’s capital, but it is truly a serene and calm city. Many people go there to put down their roots because it is not only beautiful, but calm, and full of great neighborhoods like Eaglecreek.
The Northwestern United States is packed with some of the nation’s most popular metro areas. One of these areas, one that is usually underrated, is the Treasure Valley (Boise area). The Treasure Valley is home 6 of the state’s most populated cities and the Northwest’s 3 largest city (Boise). Not to mention, it is also home to many educational establishments, investment opportunities, recreational areas, and jobs.

Among the great states of our nation, Idaho usually isn’t ranked very high in popularity. However, thanks to its increasing publicity, people have started taking notice of it. In fact, Meridian, the third largest city in the Treasure Valley (and Eagle’s neighbor) was recognized on a national level. Late in 2015, USA Today published an article about the top ten best places to live in America and guess who won the top spot? Meridian! It was won over cities in Colorado, Connecticut, and several other amazing locations thanks to its low cost of living, lower than average crime rate, amazing home prices, and, of course, its small town charm.
Now, you might be thinking that places that make that list couldn’t possibly still have a sense of small town charm. Well, wait until you see Eagle and Meridian-- or any part of the Treasure Valley for that matter. This amazing community is a suburban and outdoor person’s paradise and it offers its residents-- even newcomers-- an astounding sense of community and belonging. There are local events, awesome parks, and outdoor activities that gets everyone involved and fosters that small town friendliness..
As far as its location is concerned, the Treasure Valley is about 150 miles from Nevada and 50 miles from Oregon. It is in the southwestern part of the state and is settled in the shadow of the Sawtooth Mountain Range and Boise National Forest (The western edge of the Rockies). For residents to get to other neighboring big cities it will take only a day’s drive. Both Salt Lake and the Tri-Cities are 5 hours away (in opposite directions of course) and Portland is only 6 hours away. To get to Seattle from Boise one need only drive for 7 hours (only 2 or so past the Tri-Cities) up north. However, if you are hoping to visit somewhere like Las Vegas, New York, or Chicago, you may want to consider flying out of the Boise Airport.
