“If you like scenery.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

If you want to take a drive and look at some nice old houses (among average houses, that's the way we roll here in St. Joe) it's a very lovely drive. Don't try to walk it though. The best part has no sidewalks.

“Walk it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

It took forever to find this because it's an overpass off the main road with no good signage. Basically it's a back country road in the middle of an old but very pretty housing development. You'd probably appreciate it more if you walked along it rather than drove.

“A slice of heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

This drive through vintage homes sprinkled with modern abodes gives you a small glimpse of the hey day of St. Joseph. In the spring, the flowers adorn the sidewalks and driveways. In the fall, the colorful leaves and crisp air give it a New England flair. From Lovers Lane, hop off onto the parkway system for another adventure through St. Joseph.

“Great Poem, & Cool In The Fall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

If you are looking for Lover's Lane because of the poem, great, but except for the colors of the leaves in the fall, this is going to be a big disappointment to most of you. If the city had done something special to dress it up, it would have been nice. But the poem"Lover's Lane, Lover's Lane, hasn't existed for 50 years. Just another roadway in St. Joseph.

“1920 - 30s charm in Saint Jo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

Just driving around and found this great and very well kept section of Saint Jo, beautiful older homes on large lots all with nice landscaping, pride of ownership showed with each home. Looks like a great place to live, if you could find a home for sale.
