Grand Island Things to Do

  • VISIT THE NEW LIBRARY

    THE NEWLY EXPANDED AND REMODELED library is spacious and beautiful. It is a peaceful and relaxing place to visit and catch up on reading, perhaps a newspaper or two and a favorite magazine, if not a book.

  • Visit Hall County Railroad Days

    A nice variety of railroad-associated activities for all ages. In 2007 it was held on the 4th Saturday and Sunday in June, so I am assuming that is when it is held each year.The five photographs attached give some idea of what goes on.

  • Several eating places at one location

    This large truck stop just north of Interstate 80 at the west Grand Island exit has Subway Sandwiches, a Mexican food franchise, and Grandma Max's Restaurant. I ate at Grandma Max's a few years ago and it was fine. I like the Seafood Sensation at Subway.

    Favorite thing: I've never heard anyone refer to Grand Island (or "G.I.", as it is often referred to locally) as a college town, but there are some college opportunities here. Doane College is headquartered in another Nebraska town, but they do have a small presence here. Also Central Community College has one of its three campuses in Grand Island.
