Grand Island lies at the heart of the Niagara River, between Canada and the United States. And yes, it’s an Island, the size of Manhattan, covered in trees, parks, quaint restaurants, trails, kayak launches, boat marinas, and leafy residential neighborhoods. Yet it’s just 10 minutes from edge of Niagara Falls, 10 minutes from a Sabres Game in Buffalo, and 10 minutes from some of the best shops and museums our region has to offer.
Over our history, we’ve been a resort town, where local aristocrats, like Grover Cleveland spent the summer, a lumber town, covered in white oaks, and even a colonial battleground—see Burnt Ship Creek. Today, we're maybe a little bit of all of that, but mostly were home to over 20,000 residents who are proud to call Grand Island home!
