The town is home of several small family businesses with big hearts including grocery stores, cafes and farming and ranching supplies.
In July of each year, the community and former residents meet to celebrate the Grand View Homecoming Days. Out of town there are many sights to see and places to visit, both modern and historical. The Snake River provides many recreational activities. C.J. Strike Reservoir brings people from far away for a variety of recreational fun. Black Sands Resort is along the south side of the reservoir. C.J. Strike Dam and power plant are at the west end of the reservoir. Hunting is good during the appropriate seasons.
Camping is enjoyed at many areas along the river and in the foothills and mountains to the south. The Ted Trueblood Wildlife Preserve and the Birds of Prey area are to the north and northwest of town. A grand view of the Owyhee Mountain Range with snow in the winter and beautiful sunsets in the summer is enjoyed by all who live and visit here.
