Helping Create a New Perspective of Eagle Road

Idaho’s Busiest Road

Everyone living in the Treasure Valley is familiar with Eagle Road. There are differing feelings about the state highway that spans across three cities; some people are excited by the abundance of amazing stores, while others dread waiting in (mild) traffic.

Totally Boise understands the frustration with Eagle Road’s growing pains, but we have made it our initiative to see the positive of every situation.

For example, Eagle Road has some of the best local shopping in town, delicious food on every corner, and of course, every necessary business in-between. This state highway has grown to encompass hundreds of locally-owned businesses and is an essential roadway for daily travelers.

  • Over 150 restaurants take up the span of Eagle Road.
  • Eagle Road is now known as a must-see destination for locals and travelers alike

Creating United New Perspective

Eagle Road Idaho was created with the mission to share and improve the experience of Eagle Road travelers, shoppers, and business owners.
