Celebrate Family in Grand Island

Gather the clan, it's time to get reacquainted, to share some family lore, to introduce the newest generations to their heritage. Bring your far-flung family together; its reunion time in Grand Island.

Seriously, Grand Island makes the perfect location. We’re half way to everywhere in the continental United States. We are easily accessible by car, bus or plane — even train if you can sweet talk a 20-minute ride from a family member.

Where do I start?
Start with the Convention and Visitors Bureau. We provide reunion planners with an array of complimentary services and planning assistance. We offer planning tips, site selection, site tours, hotel rates, name badges, shopping and dining coupons, local tours, and programs. Group rates for attractions, information packets, maps anything we can do to make your reunion a success.

Room and board Grand Island has great lodging facilities with over 1,700 sleeping rooms that range from family-friendly and affordable to luxury suites.
The heart of any gathering is breaking bread and sharing meals together. With over 100 restaurants and a tasty list of licensed caterers, everyone will enjoy mealtime. Choose from mom & pop cafes, sushi, barbeque, Thai or Greek, authentic Mexican to gourmet burgers — did you know there's a chocolate bar downtown?
