    An opportunity to get out into the heart of Cedar Key landscape. a nicely maintaned boardwalk skirts the water giving you a glimpse at wildlife. A park that includes a frisbee golf course is at the end. Don't forget your bug spray. Lots of no see ums.

    Quaint two building museum featuring the community, its history, and its industry. Worth even short walk through and for true history buffs, stay a while and read lots about the evolution of Cedar Key. Staff are eager to answer any questions and a tiny gift area up front helps support it. We hit a few highlights and were pleased with our visit, giving us some more to go back and look at next trip. Have you thoroughly visited Cedar Key if you don't enjoy a little of its history? I think not.

    We did the walking and driving trails. So beautiful! The Suwannee river is spectacular and the driving tour would be amazing to do via bike.

    What a treat it was to both have a coastal tour by one of the boating companies, then get dropped off at the Atsena Otie Key. I was in the Wildlilfe Refuge both on and off the water.

    I learned about the refuge from the boat's tour guide. Then I had some very peaceful time exploring the Atsena Otie Key. This is the only key that is entirely open to the public. (Other keys are partially open, with some of the land being privately owned, or owned by schools.)

    Atsena Otie Key offered one a sense of going back in time. The cemetery gave one a chance to reflect back to the 1800's. I saw remnants of the mill. I was grateful that I didn't encounter any mosquitoes. Being in this region in February has its advantages!

    I appreciate this refuge, as the birds are protected. Though I am not a "birder" per se, looking at the birds I saw was truly exquisite. If I visit this region again, I would love to paddle around on a kayak. What a magical place, indeed!

    Ample parking, $2,00 per person~
    Interesting displays.
    Paths need shells or something, a bit scary~there were ants where you walk. The St. Clair home was closed for renovation~

    As we get ready to plan a wedding in Cedar Key, one of our visits was to the Welcome Center. They were so friendly and helpful. We were able to get some brochures on the area as well as general resource material. They also had some cute note cards and other items for sale at a decent price. While we were there, the gal there mentioned that they were giving Lighthouse tours for the next few hours. They only do this 4 times per year and we had no idea! We went and had a great time. What a beautiful area - old Florida at it's best!

    thank you for all your help!

    We took a great boat tour of the islands and learned some interesting history of the area. Next time I want to visit the history museum... we heard from more than one fellow visitor that is was very interesting.

    Beautiful sunsets are a big reason people visit!

    There are only three or four restaurants in the area. They don’t take reservations, and everyone eats early to go to bed early so they can get out of the water early. Make sure you rent your rundown pontoon boat and golf cart well in advance.

    The clams and oysters were outstanding ! We wheeled our cooler in and they filled it up and packed them with ice. The oysters and clams were probably the best I have ever had. The salt content in the oysters was second to none. Stop and load up when you leave Cedar Key, you won't regret it.

    .6 mile hike down a sandy nature trail seeing all kinds of flora and fauna native to FL. They have it labeled too. Parking is very limited (like 3 parking spots). The canopy of foliage was so pretty leading you down to the railroad trestle. It is worth stopping either when going into town and or leaving. Free!

    This shop is a little smaller than the other art shop on the island, but offers equally stunning art work. We purchased several pieces and cannot wait to display them in our home as a reminder of our wonderful time in Cedar Key.

    My dog and I both enjoyed the park. Nice trees and grassy areas. Several benches overlooking the small beach area.

    It's worth the walk back to the lagoon and simply enjoy the birds, water, trees, and peace that surrounds you.

    My family and I visited this store while on vacation back in July 2018. There are so many cute coastal gifts and decor. My sister and I purchased our treasures from Leslie, the store owner, and she was wonderful! The next time we plan to visit Cedar Key we will definitely stop and shop at Island Thyme Antiques.

    This is a park designed for a hiker to take a walk into the scrubs. It could be very interesting in the summer or spring but one should be prepared for mosquitos. As a winter visitor, we were disappointed and spent less than 30 minutes there. An investment in some boardwalks would be worth the state's efforts.
