Be Happy Eagle, Idaho: Flying Pie is Now Open!
Snuggled in the Treasure Valley between the Boise foothills and the Boise River, and just 10 miles northwest of the capital, Eagle, Idaho is acclaimed as one of the most desirable locations in the state both for families and outdoor enthusiasts. Although the city of Boise, Idaho and surrounding areas including Eagle and Meridian, are in a dry desert climate where rainfall averages barely 12” a year, lakes and rivers abound, with the Boise River actually flowing through Eagle and the capital providing for a lush greenbelt. The paved greenbelt trail extends 20 miles along the river and is perfect for walking, jogging, and enjoying the scenery. Eagle’s verdant setting, stunning mountain views, area lakes and water parks, plus easy access to amenities, make Eagle the perfect place to live and work.
All that outdoor fun available in Eagle can sure build up a person’s appetite! Eagle’s local downtown area has a western feel with streetlamps and charming shops, as well as incredible dining options, which will soon include Eagle’s new Flying Pie Pizzaria location.
