No it' s fictional. The set is in L.A. universal studios. The square they use is the same of the movie " Back to the future". Anyway Grandview it' s supposed to be near New York even if it' s not real. 13  out of 20 found this valuable. Do you?

The Grandview seen in Ghost Whisperer is fictional but there is somewhere in New York State that is almost identical. Last year i flew from London to NYC and drove into the country. it's a town called Hudson (across the river from Athens). While exploring I found the place to be very similar so I suppose you could say Grandview is real, but under a different name. 12  out of 17 found this valuable. Do you?

Grandview is in Idaho. In season 4, episode 71, Melinda makes reference to a little girl who lived "an hour away in Lewiston" which is also in Idaho 7  out of 18 found this valuable. Do you?

I've never noticed this but he was killed trying to catch a flight to Grandview to find Melinda. You don't get on a plane to travel 15 minutes away. Perhaps you are thinking of where his ex-wife who resembled her lived. After the divorce he probably moved away.

I assumed you mean season 4 episode 7 (Threshold) but I just scanned an online script of the episode and there is no such reference. Or which episode did you mean?

The Grandview which the show is set in is fictional, though supposedly there is a real town by a different name which is identical to it though details of this location I don't have.
There is never a specific discussion or reference as to what state the fictional Grandview in the show is located in but subtle pieces of evidence say New York.

In the season 2 episode 'Speed Demon' when Melinda first brakes down on a strangely repeating road you can see that the plates on Melinda's Saturn and Cindy's truck are designed similarly to New York plates despite actually just saying "Drive Safely".
Then later in the same episode she ventures down that same road with Jim who is consulting a road map. After the car goes all Stephen King 'Christine' they pull up to Cindy's garage and right after Melinda exclaims "That's the girl who helped me on the road last night" Jim starts to fold up the map and for a split second if you're paying attention you can spot the word 'York' at the top left corner in large black letters. You can find such road maps in real life, I believe my grandfather used to collect them.

(Note: It just so happens that I went looking for these details, they are difficult to spot).

In the season 2 episode 'The Night We Met' in the 'Umbrella Room' flashback Jim gives Melinda the address 'West 90' when she asks him if he lives nearby to which she replies "That's the upper west side, this is East Village. That's not close at all."
East Village is a neighborhood in Manhattan.

There is also an East Village in De Moines, Iowa but the apt buildings and scenery are clearly New York style and Jim's neighborhood, The Upper West Side is also in Manhattan.

(continuation)

In season 3's 'Weight of What Was' the doctor who passed away while on his way to Grandview to warn the townspeople of the tainted bread was coming from Weston. There is a Weston in Connecticut and a Weston in Massachusetts. Both are probably a day, perhaps even four (considering this was the 18th century so horseback was the mode of transportation) maximum from New York but I'm no expert I've never been to the East Coast at all. Either way however is absolutely believable and plausible.

In season 2's 'Love Still Won't Die' Kyle McCall's Melinda-look-alike Ex wife lives in Eastwick. Eastwick is in New Jersey. NJ is drivable from New York which was how Melinda got there and enough of a distance to justify the fact that she opted to stay the night in a hotel after visiting the woman.

I believe there is also a mention of Brooklyn in an episode as well as a few other mentions and visits to nearby cities/towns to Grandview that are in New York.
