Voice of Travelers to Grand Island

Crane Migration experience in Grand Island

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Grand Island. I had traveled to the city on a work assignment, but I decided to stay a bit longer. I traveled to Grand Island by air, with Mesa Airlines. I flew on business class ticket and I liked their services. The plane was clean and comfortable and we arrived in Grand Island on time. I stayed at Hampton Inn Grand Island. I visited the Crane Trust nature center. It was so beautiful watching sandhill cranes migrating. We also had a very informative session with the guides.

Delightful stay in Grand Island

I traveled to Grand Island for a family celebration. I went with Allegiant Air on economy class ticket. The cabin crew went beyond their call of duty to ensure that we had a smooth flight. We arrived in Grand Island ahead of the scheduled time. It had been a while since I had gone back home so I stayed with my parents a while. I visited Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer, a great facility with impressive art exhibits. I also went to Hornady Manufacturing Factory. It was interesting to learn what it takes to manufacture a hunting gun.
