While Grand Island has a wealth of big city amenities, the beauty of the Platte River and rolling Nebraska Sandhills are just a few miles away. Hunting and water sport opportunities are plentiful, making this area a dream come true for nature lovers and outdoorsmen. When the Great Outdoors beckons, you are never far from places to camp, boat, canoe, kayak, or sit back and enjoy the splendor of the Nebraska plains.
Grand Island is rich in experiences to satisfy your cultural side. Favorites include the Concert Association’s annual line-up of exceptional instrumental ensembles from all over the world, and Grand Island Little Theater’s lively assortment of productions featuring local talent. And, if artwork and history are of interest, the options are plentiful in our Railside downtown area and at the Stuhr Museum.
Grand Island is proud to be the home of the Nebraska State Fair, where 330,000 people of all ages come each year for high energy fun and a celebration of agriculture.
