This is a pretty tree lined street, but to me it was almost as interesting to marvel at who planted some of the trees! Famous honorees have plaques next to these gargantuan, seemingly dripping trees: FDR, Nixon, Amelia Earhart, Louis Armstrong and Babe Ruth to name a few I recognized. We only saw most from the car, but a walk through them would probably be nice and really highlight the size of the trees. The one tree we posed with could’ve fit a family of ten in front of it with no problem!

Walking along banyan drive you csnt but be impressed by the vegetation. Some of the names of tree donors are impressive. The nearby sights are also great.

This is probably not a place I would go out of my way to visit if I wasn’t staying in one of the hotels located on the peninsula, and I’m a tree aficionado, but the banyans flanking this boulevard are enormous. Many are 80-90 years old and they were planted by celebrities to commemorate visits. A walk amongst them in the evening is quite something just to hear all the tree frog voices making a racket.

Pretty tree lined street near the water. The trees were planted by notable people such as Amelia Earhart and a plaque displays who planted each tree and when.

While it really is just a bunch of large trees on a road, it is amazing to think that they were all planted by celebrities. The sheer size of some of these trees is amazing. My favourite tree was one planted by Babe Ruth.
