Boaters Attracted to McGregor Boulevard and Iona Road Communities
The most expensive and sought after real estate in Fort Myers is located along the Caloosahatchee River in South Fort Myers. This area includes neighborhoods located off both historic McGregor Boulevard and Iona Road. Both of these streets both run parallel to the river and are dominated by residential waterfront communities on their river-facing, west sides.
McGregor Boulevard, which is lined with majestic royal palm trees, was home in the roaring 1920s to our original snowbirds…..Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and Harvey Firestone. Today, 90 years later, it is still home to prominent snowbirds as well as many of the movers and shakers of our community. The McGregor Boulevard communities of Palmetto Point, Gulf Harbour and the Palms of McGregor are luxury waterfront neighborhoods. Old Fort Myers offers history lovers a chance to own a period house from the days of Edison, many of which have been wonderfully restored. Boating enthusiasts are drawn to the popular riverfront communities of Caloosa Yacht & Racquet Club, The Landings and Town & River.
The western side of Iona Road is also lined with riverfront communities and is a very popular area with boat and yacht owners. This area offers very quick, unrestricted access to the open waters of the Gulf. Luxury boating communities along Iona Road include Jonathan Harbour, St. Charles Harbour and Connie Mack Island. Upscale Iona Road communities offering outstanding boating opportunities include Catalpa Cove, Harbour Isle and Intracoastal Harbour.
