Why is this recommended as an attraction. There is nothing special to see. I think that they are trying to bring $$ to the area that is actually run down.

This is such a beautiful drive. I would love to live there. The trees are in their full fall glory. Now you get to really realize why the poem was wrote. Ashland Avenue is near by and also the parkway. Put all three together and you have one fabulous fall drive. The parkway connects from one end of the city... More

This was something we seeked out, because we had read some interesting reviews. Now I am not sure what people were taking about in the reviews because it was just a very short street with a monument with a quote from Eugene Fields. Had some flowers along the base of the monument... Not worth looking for. Not too much to... More

This is another site I was surprised to see high on the list of things to do in St. Joe... This is nothing more than relatively short street. It is certainly nicer than most streets in St. Joe; however, I would much rather take a drive down Ashland or out in Stonecrest. There is a monument; however, it says little... More

Read the poem and then make the drive down this beautiful lane. It is covered with grand trees that shadow the drive to make it a very peaceful drive on any given afternoon.

I read these reviews with interest, as I am considering moving to the area. After living throughout the US. (I currently live in the Bay Area) and having visited many of the US scenic sites and local neighborhoods, I have to say that this truly is a lovely area. I just visited in the fall and it is beautiful and... More

The residents in this area like to try to make a bigger deal about the name of their street than is necessary to boost their self esteem & property values but its way overrated. I'm sure it was neat back in the day but that was long ago. It's just another street these days that a poem talked about long... More

This is a lovely, winding, street in the northern part of town. While it is no longer the country lane described in the poem by Eugene Fields, it is a lovely drive through a nice neighborhood. Fortunately, we chose a time of day (mid-morning on Wednesday) when traffic was light and we could slow down and look at some very... More

Lover's Lane is a beautiful place to drive in any season! Winter boasts lots of beautiful Christmas lights, and Spring/Summer you'll see houses with the outstanding gardening of the locals.
