Cedar Key

Cedar Key is an island community on Florida’s Gulf Coast, about 50 miles southwest of Gainesville. More like a fishing village, its old-time Florida charm attracts many visitors throughout the year. An outdoor lovers paradise, fishing, boating, and kayaking are Cedar Key’s most popular activities.

The chain of Islands that surround Cedar Key are federally protected sanctuaries and provided a home to a vast range of migratory and shorebirds, including the elusive white pelican, roseate spoonbill, and bald eagle.
