Tour of Eagan, Minnesota

Updated: Apr 12, 2021

Alright... Eagan, Minnesota. So you're moving or relocating to the Twin Cities, and you've got your sights set on the suburbs. If you're looking for something where you get a blend of good schools, commercial conveniences, wide suburban streets and also relatively affordable for Minnesota, then check this tour out!

Eagan was settled as an Irish farming community and is the "Onion Capital" of the United States.

Its largest growth took place after Highway 77 was relocated and expanded and a six-lane bridge was constructed over the Minnesota River in 1980 and the city's influence in the region grew when Northwest Airlines (now Delta Air Lines) and Thomson West (now Thomson Reuters) established their headquarters there.

Eagan is home to legal publisher West, part of Thomson Reuters, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, Scantron, and Coca-Cola's Midwest bottling facility. The sparsely populated northern portions of the city, being convenient to freeways and MSP Airport, is home to warehouses and distribution centers, and Minnesota's largest UPS hub.

The Minnesota Vikings relocated their headquarters from Eden Prairie, MN to Eagan, at the site of the former Northwest Airlines headquarters. The complex can be seen from interstate 494 and is also home to the Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center, which serves as the Minnesota Vikings Training Facility.
