It is located about 20 minutes north of Minneapolis, 25 minutes northwest of St. Paul, and about 35 minutes northwest of the MSP airport. Coon Rapids is bordered to the north by Andover, to the east by Blaine, to the south by Fridley, and to the west is the Mississippi River and the cities of Brooklyn Park, Champlin, and Anoka.


Truly, Coon Rapids has all the suburban amenities you need and great outdoor spaces. It also has pretty good schools, not upper echelon, but decent. The city is primarily served by the Anoka-Hennepin Public School District which gets a B+ rating*.

If you're looking for a single-family home, currently on the market prices range from around $100k on the extremely low end and upwards of around $665k on the high end.
