I used to live in Chaska and I wouldnt say delapidated. Its not exciting by any means but its not terrible either. Excelcior is nice, very how would I put it "artsy?" It doesnt really seem like the surrounding area to me, but it could just be me.lotrfan55345 said:Chaska & Excelcior are the ones I most visit. Exelcior is much nicer and more "upper class" than Chaska. I find Chaska actually quite a bit.. delapidated.
