SW Florida September 2011 State of the Real Estate Market ReportTown & River is a waterfront community tucked away on the river side of McGregor Blvd on the Fort Myers side of the river.  The community features deep water gulf access lots as well as a fresh water lake offering some nice lakefront views.  Not every home is waterfront, but all enjoy the peace and serenity of South Fort Myers living off historic McGregor Blvd and all the conveniences to everything that comes with it. Spotlight on Town and River.

McGregor Blvd was the original center of town and housing in Fort Myers used to be defined by which side of the street you lived.  While growth has certainly moved eastward, the charm and beauty of McGregor Blvd remain a fixture alongside Thomas Edison’s vision for McGregor Blvd showcasing why Fort Myers is named The City of Palms. It was Thomas Edison after all who was responsible for lining McGregor Blvd with the majestic palms we see today and defines our place in SW Florida history as people from all over come to visit our beaches and gaze at McGregor Blvd and the seemingly endless flow of palm trees as you drive down McGregor.
