Group Tour Magic
Midwest Ag Showplace
Grand Island, Nebraska is the showplace for agriculture in the midwest. Raising Nebraska, an interactive museum, showcases modern agriculture while Stuhr Museum features historical agriculture. Horse racing at Fonner Park and other ag-related industry and events round out the city's calendar and economy.
The worlds largest crane roost is just outside of Grand Island. It fills up every spring in the Central Platte River Valley when the central flyway hosts nearly 1,000,000 sandhill cranes in a roughly 90-mile span of the river in what National Geographic pegged it as the second greatest North American migration.
Grand Island’s attractions and events will keep your group tour engaged throughout your entire stay in our city.
In Grand Island you will find Fonner Park, where the springtime tradition of Thoroughbred horse racing thunders around the track, the Nebraska State Fair entertains, and national livestock shows show off the agricultural roots of our community. Grand Island is also home to the Husker Harvest Days farm show, Stuhr Museum and the University of Nebraska’s Raising Nebraska – a modern agricultural showcase.
Grand Island is connected by the popular downtown Railside District with its abundant dining and shopping. The free and festive atmosphere of the Hear Grand Island concert series fills Railside with music of every genre during the summer.
