With rolling farmland, burbling rivers, and a quintessential small-town vibe, it's no wonder that Grand Island, Nebraska, won the National Civic League's All-America City Award not once, not twice, but three times! Grand Island flights land at Central Nebraska Regional Airport (GRI), conveniently situated to serve as your portal to everything this gem of the American heartland has to offer.
Transportation from GRI
While several bus lines offer service around the region, including the Black Hills Bus Service and the Navigator Airport Express, getting around within Grand Island itself is best served by private transportation since the city doesn't maintain its own public transit system. Fortunately, flights to Grand Island mean you'll disembark right next to counters for several car rental options, and you can speak with the airport's visitor's center for information on local taxi service, which is available, but often unpredictably scheduled. Once you've secured transportation, most Grand Island hotels are just a short drive away. Simply exit the airport by taking a left onto Sky Park Road, and then take the next right onto East Capital Avenue and drive straight into the city. North Broadwell Avenue and Highway 281 are home to the largest clusters of hotels for your Grand Island vacation packages. If you're planning a fishing or rafting trip on the Platte River, you'll want to look for accommodations along highway 30 and highway 34 in the southern portion of the city, which also makes a convenient home base for exploring the Stuhr Museum of the Pioneer and other local attractions.
