In the late 1800s, Tootie McGregor and Thomas & Mina Edison began the beautification of Fort Myers. Imported Royal Palms were planted along Riverside Drive, later renamed McGregor Boulevard. We believe McGregor Boulevard is one of the most beautiful streets anywhere in America – come take a drive and see for yourself!
These magnificent Royal Palms, some towering at 75 feet, give the City of Palms its nickname. The fun and variety of tropical gardening is one of many great reasons to enjoy living in the Fort Myers area.
