To some, Eagle River might be considered Anchorage’s largest suburb. But, to the 25,000 residents this city stands on it’s own. The feeling of community is what really binds this small town together. Built around, and named after the winding “Eagle River”, most of the properties are available in Eagle River Valley itself. It splits between several large upscale subdivisions and the more secluded hillside houses overlooking the river. This waterway defines the way Eagle River was built.
It is not uncommon to find large parcels of land located in the far reaches of the valley. However, most of this town closely resembles Anchorage. Tight knight subdivisions are sprinkled throughout. Meander into downtown to find older construction, near the conveniences the city has to offer. Eagle River also serves as a convenient location for our state’s Military Members, with its proximity to JBER. Most Alaskans find this place to be much quieter and more relaxed than its counterpart in Anchorage, and gladly make the short commute in to work each day.
Eagle River is proud to have some fantastic schools, from the elementary level through to high school. It is also lucky enough to have one of Alaska’s best year-round indoor sports facilities in the Mac Center. Not to be outshone, Eagle River also has wonderful access to the great outdoors. At the end of Eagle River Valley, sits the Eagle River Nature Center, with trail access to the famous “Crow Creek Trail”. The Beach Lake Trails near Chugiak High School, have plenty of kilometers to explore while running, biking, or skiing. Overall, Eagle River is a great place to settle down and call home.
