be prepared to drive leisurely and enjoy the views of the nice homes and the glimpses of waterways through the homes.

Just a simple roadway lined with tall palms. It was pretty but nothing out of this world. Busy street as well!

Old palm trees on both sides of road. Nothing to write home about except.... try any "east" side of the road eateries, like Clancy's Bar & Grill. Again, nothing to encourage you to make this area a destination point. Except: down the road further "north" is the old Edison & old Ford Estates that have walking tours throughout the year.

Yes it's kind of neat with all the palm trees stretching a good bit of the road but it's just a residential roadway so yes I like it but it doesn't blow me away. Personally I like a lot of the older homes that are along McGregor .

We expected Malls to be better than our shopping centres, we found this wasn't the case and so were a little disappointed.

The road meanders along the houses on the river including the Edison and Ford Estates. Eclectic mix of old and new punctuated with the occasional restaurant and business. But watch out for falling Royal Palm Fronds !!!!! Ft Myers is the City of Palms, and these royals are over 30 feet in size , with 10 ft fronds falling periodically,... More

The blvd has lots of things off it like restaurants, shops, and the Edison estates. The road is lined with palm trees which gives the feel of being in Florida. I wouldn't make a special trip to see the road. Just combine it with something else to do as sort of a detour.

McGregor Blvd is a beautifully landscaped road with tall king palms lining the street. Beautiful older homes sit far back off the road, reminding one of the historical days of Fort Myers. The crown of the street is the Thomas Edison Estate...which is also well worth the visit.

I have traveled up and down this lovely street hundreds of times since the 1960s, when my grandparents lived on a cul-de-sac street coming off of McGregor Boulevard. It is as lovely today as it has been in past decades. The royal palms planted and replaced along this street seem to go on and on, and the feeling one gets... More

With a good mix of restaurants, McGregor from College to downtown is a must see. It's the 'real' old Florida.
