McGregor is an extremely popular tourist destination in the Western Cape, both for domestic and international markets. It is a unique, alternative, eccentric and therapeutic village at the end of a road to nowhere, situated away from the crowds where one can truly unwind, step back in time and just relax. McGregor is widely recognized as unique among Western Cape towns because of its setting, its distinctive environmental character and the particular range of 19th century building types it contains. The rural character has remained in much of the village, and many 19th century buildings and streetscapes are still intact, including the largest single concentration of modest Cape thatched cottages in any Cape country town or village. McGregor has seen a major growth in tourism in recent years, and on most weekends all available accommodation is full. In addition, McGregor is part of the popular Route 62 which boasts some of the best wineries in the country, and numerous festivals throughout the year.
