Located in America's heartland and home to the Nebraska State Fair, Grand Island also has fairly robust shopping areas…both new and historical. There is an historic downtown, kind of a quintessential main street. Great birdwatching, a grand old theatre, thoroughbred horse racing, tons of festivals and events and beautiful old homes. Lots of open park space, a YMCA and YWCA, hospitals, a big entertainment events center and golf galore. Something for everyone.
