Chanhassen is a very welcoming community, with plenty of ways to get involved. Also, the town represents some of the best character of citizens within Minnesota. Moreover, Chanhassen is centrally located in reference to the majority of its restaurants, shops, and stores. However, the food selections within the town aren’t the best, and the restaurant selections are sub par.

Chanhassen is a great city to live in! The neighborhoods are very well kept and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. There are many popular, well known places to eat as well as Lake Ann which has a beach and boat rentals.
A great suburb with a lot of opportunities. Good mix of local and chain businesses, as well as many attractions to keep you busy on the weekends. Highlights include the Chan cinema, Paisley Park, and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Downtown Chanhassen is great for shopping and just hanging out with friends.
