Welcome to Grand Island

Great people.
Better opportunities.

Central location, easy access.

With connections to major highways and Interstate 80, access to Grand Island is easy, convenient, and cost-effective. You'll have dual-rail service from Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe, plus direct access to a commercial service airport.


Continued growth and stability.

Grand Island has a population of 53,131 and a labor market population of 43,000. Hall County added nearly 4,400 jobs between 2003 and 2013, with employment actually expanding by 3.6% between 2008 and 2013, a five-year period that corresponds with the national recession and subsequent recovery.

Employment expansion.
“Grand Island provided us the ability to build and maintain professional careers, while still being present in our children's lives. That's the 'better opportunity' we found here.”
