I get to visit this place all the time now that I live nearby. It is rich in history, wildlife, and beauty. I have photo after photo to prove its beauty and wildlife. And, I keep digging into its history. Love it! Come visit! I did, and stayed!

Love this place, Sweet. Cedar Keys is like a small, small Key West - love the nature and all it has to offer. You can take your dog with you about anywhere as well!

Cedar Key, an hour west of Gainesville is a peaceful tiny fishing hamlet on the Gulf coast. Captain Doug's boat tours to the Cedar Key NWR offers a thrilling experience in birdwatching. We spotted common loons, ospreys, brown pelicans, white pelicans, horned grebe, ruddy turnstone, laughing gulls, herring gulls, sanderlings, wood stork and tons of double crested cormorants which are stunning to watch in flight as they take off!

It is hard to imagine the Cedar Key area back in the days when the cedar trees were being logged . Now the area is definitely off the beaten path. The water in this area is extremely shallow and the weekend of the Open House the tides were extremely low, so it was a relief when we made it out to the Key and back without getting stuck (Thanks, Captain Doug !) The Key itself is very small, but interesting if you are into Florida history. It has what must be the smallest lighthouse in the world atop the island. We climbed up the very small circular stairway to the top and walked around. Views of the entire tiny island and the other Keys in the Refuge in the distance. Very neat ! It is only open once or twice a year (it was open back in July, too) so you have to plan your visit.
