The quaint small town of Eagle, home to the county seat, has experienced steady growth over the past decade-plus while managing to maintain its old west charm and build on its easy lifestyle. Founded in 1887 along the Eagle River and located 25 minutes west of Vail at a warmer, lower elevation, the sun almost always shines in Eagle, even when surrounding peaks are blanketed with snow. Paved walkways and bike paths wind their way in and around the historic downtown in this cycle friendly community, which has undergone notable improvements while maintaining original store fronts and architecture from its agricultural and railroad roots. Wide open vistas and mountain peaks dominate your views from nearly every perspective in town. Ample parks and open spaces, an ice rink and pool, playgrounds, special events complex, miles of river frontage and pristine creeks for fly fishing, and the now famous mountain biking and hiking trails that surround town provide endless recreation opportunities. In addition, the town offers a variety of events throughout the year including weekly outdoor summer concerts on Centennial Stage at the Town Park, farmers markets, a fall festival, a holiday parade, summer outdoor sports festival, Eagle Flight Days - the annual summer family fun weekend, and the County Fair and Rodeo. The Eagle Medical Center provides convenient access to all types of care including physical therapy. A variety of retail can be found in Eagle Ranch Village, Downtown, and along the commercial corridor of Chambers Avenue. Properties range from simple historic houses near downtown, condominiums, flats, single family and golf course homes in Eagle Ranch, and large custom homes at Eby Creek, to sprawling ranch estates on the outskirts of town. The Eagle Regional Airport and Jet Center are only minutes west of town. Breathtaking scenery, affordability, convenience, outdoor recreation, and historic charm combine in Eagle.
