graphicJust a short 18-mile drive from Minneapolis and the Minneapolis /St. Paul International Airport, Chanhassen is an easily accessed destination. Consisting of 14,427 acres, a majority of the city is located within Carver County. A 154-acre portion of eastern Chanhassen is located in Hennepin County.

Nestled between the cities of Excelsior and Minnetonka to the north, Eden Prairie to the east and Chaska to the southwest, Chanhassen has a central location to many points of interest in the Western Metro Area. In addition to the many Chanhassen amenities, just a short drive on the easily accessible highway system will allow for visits to nearby attractions such as:

  • Valleyfair Amusement Park, 8 miles
  • Canterbury Park, 8 miles
