Wood River Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 27 photos


This is the bank in Wood River. Actually I think there are two banks. Anyway, if there were a "cute bank" contest, this might be a winner. The "garage door" on the right is actually the drive-through! I guess it was closed today.

Downtown Wood River

Wood River is a town of about 1200 people located along the Lincoln Highway, which is Highway 30. It is about 13 miles west of Grand Island.


Scott Frost is probably Wood River's most famous resident. As quarterback of the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers, he led them to a national championship in the 1990's.
