“Cedar Key offers solitude .. and fun!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Stayed at the Gulf Side Motel, right on the water. Fished off the huge dock, walked to the downtown area where all the bars/restaurants/shop and yes even MORE docks for fishing. Went swimming, kayaking, rented an airboat and caught huge redfish. Ate at the Big Deck, sipped a martini at the local pub. Lots to enjoy, all within walking distance. Museum, was great. Everything about Cedar Key, including their hospitality especially Teresa and Roul at the Gulf Side Motel...well...just go. You'll see! Don't forget to visit Shale Mound too! Stand on the little beachy area and watch the dolphins play. And oh yes...don't forget to fish!!

“Nice Overview of Little Cedar Key”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

It is worth the $2.00 admission to capture a bit of history of old time Florida and the men and women who founded Cedar Key. The local volunteer will chat for a while and give lots of information. Enjoy!

“Great Place to Visit”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

You can take as much time or as little time as you want. It is a self guided museum. If you havequestions there is a Docent to answer them and assist you. A mere $2 per person which helps the museum keep up with maintenance and operating expenses. They have some wonderful books and souveniers too. It all supports the museum and Florida history. You can also have your lighthouse passport stamped here.

“A Good Way to Understand the Island”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

This all volunteer organization has done a great job telling the story of this Island. It's worth the hour or so it will take to find out about the railroad and the pencil factory and the life of the people who make this place special
