Burnsville boasts nearly 2,700 businesses (many in the areas of science, technology, healthcare, engineering and math); hundreds of shops and restaurants (including the 1.2 million-square-foot Burnsville Center); more than 75 parks and miles of open spaces; a 1,000-seat regional theater – the Ames Center – that draws acts and attendees from far and wide; and many more amenities than you can imagine.
