A little more than 500 people call the city of Sunfish Lake in Dakota County, Minnesota their home. It's an area known for preserving its pristine surroundings, and there is no shortage of beautiful outdoor space to explore in town. Sunfish Lake is a private community, but it maintains strong ties to nearby Twin Cities, so the amenities of a big city are never far away. The town sits on 1.7 square acres of land, and except for four churches in Sunfish Lake, the rest of the area is zoned single-family residential. Because there's no commercial development in town, you'll have to travel outside of the city limits for shopping, dining, and certain recreational facilities.
