“Pretty drive”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The street is lined with royal palm trees, tall and beautiful all the way to the beach with many old Florida homes along the way. Nice drive

“Enjoy the Palm trees along McGregor Blvd”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Thomas Edison ask the city of Fort Myers if he could plant the trees along his property on McGregor. Thankfully they agreed and we have become known as the City of Palms. It is beautiful to drive from downtown almost to the beach seeing the Palms along the way. The homes are not all alike as most are now a days. Beautiful well cared for, but different. But also try taking any side street towards the River. Just to see the view. This area is my home, so I get to enjoy it everyday.

“Beautiful Tree Lines Street”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

I think that no visit to Fort Myers would be complete without seeing McGregor Boulevard. If you go to the Edison/Ford Museums, you will drive down a portion of the Boulevard just to get there. Take some time, and drive the whole thing; it is truly impressive. Thank you Mr. Edison for your foresight!

“A Great Place to Run and Walk”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

By having the sidewalks on both sides of this wonderful palm-tree lined street, McGregor Boulevard is a great place to run, jog, and walk. I recently visited the area for a few days and parked my car each morning in order to enjoy this unique running experience as well as give a friendly hello to fellow walkers and joggers.
A most beautiful boulevard which absolutely captivates your senses and allows you to have a special moment with nature during your run.
