I wish that I had read the reviews before moving from Sarasota to the Clearwater area. Now I'll have to wait til next year to drive down there to see those Christmas lights. The drive is beautiful any time of the year. Those Royal Palms are majestic. Don't miss stopping at the Edison Museum. It is an unforgettable experience.

I was not sure if we were in Florida or California. The street is lined with the most beautiful Palm trees. Knowing the history is cool. Thomas Edison lived down there in the winter and he is the reason the street is lined with Royal Palm Trees. We didn't get a chance to go to his Winter residence, but we... More

This is a cool little drive. Start out in the River District and Head South The first couple miles are the best as the houses are nicer and the grounds cleaner. The south end of Mcgregor Blvd is not like the north end. Actually the closer you get to the Beaches the less nice it gets. I turns into more... More

McGregor Blvd is beautiful. You drive there and see palm trees on both sides. Very tall trees opening your way toward Sanibel Causeway. It is a perfect combination.

Nothing exciting, just a road with palm trees. Traffic is horrible during season, its a one lane road in each direction n floods when it rains heavy. if your in a hurry to get to work, avoid this road!

We love to visit McGregor Blvd. to see the Christmas lights on the palms. The Edison Ford Winter Homes are stunning at Christmastime.

This is a slow drive down a fairy narrow street that at times widens into a divided boulevard. It is lined with mature palm trees and old mansions including the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford winter estates. Very nice during the holiday season with many homes decorated with Christmas lights. If you have a car then take time to drive... More

These trees were started/planted many years ago with the assistance of the Jasmine Garden Club of Ft. Myers. It is such a beautiful street to drive (walk, bike, jog) down with these majestic royal palms lining each side of the street.

I'll never forget the first view I had of this stretch of palm-lined boulevard in Fort Myers. It took my breath away. The towering royal palms on parade dazzled these northern eyes. Fort Myers is referred to as the palm tree city of the United States, and with good reason. As many times as we have driven this road since... More
