Living history, inviting parks, racing horses, migrating cranes . . . when we say Grand Island has something for everyone, it's not just cliche—it's the honest-to-goodness truth.
All you have to do is decide how you want to play and plan accordingly. Time your visit with spring to witness the annual sandhill crane migration over Grand Island. In summer, step into the 19th century at Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer's Railroad Town, packed with costumed interpreters you can meet and vintage games you can play. Island Oasis Water Park and Stolley Park, with an arboretum, disc golf and castle-themed playground, make for more family fun. Year 'round, catch live or simulcast horse-racing at Fonner Park.
