Eagle, CO – Eagle is a small Colorado town located 24 miles west of Vail and 15 miles from Beaver Creek. It is the county seat of Eagle County and more recently has become a reborn authentic western town circled by newer neighborhoods and modern amenity. The lower Eagle valley used to serve as a bedroom community for the Vail and Beaver Creek resort industry but now has its own set of entrepreneurs and businesses that have helped to pump up the micro-local economy.
The “old downtown” street system has remained much the same since the pioneer days of Eagle County and the town boasts of a rich western history. Today, the town of Eagle is a meca for families. Moms, dads, brothers, sisters, classmates and “BFF’s” fill the parks during regularly scheduled special events. There are several school choices and they all are above average with a variety of sports and activities for kids of all ages to participate in. With more sustainable developments already approved and a good supply of existing homes and homesites, this is where Eagle County will see the most population and economic growth over the next many years. And, the County and Town of Eagle are preparing the infrastructure accordingly, currently adding a number of round a bouts and pedestrian overpasses for walking and bicycle friendly transportation.
