Cedar Key Visitor Resource Guide 2017-01-26T16:21:42+00:00

This page is designed to be a comprehensive resource of things to do, places to eat, places to stay, and things to see when you visit Cedar Key.

If visiting Cedar Key for the first time, I suggest making your first stop the Cedar Key Welcome Center, hosted by the Cedar Key Chamber of Commerce.  The Welcome Center is located on Second Street about 1 1/2 blocks East of D Street (24), on the right.   See the aerial view below…

I also highly recommend visiting Florida’s Pure Water Wilderness site for a comprehensive guide to recreational opportunities in the surrounding area.

Below is a comprehensive list of sites related specifically to Cedar Key.  I will continue to add links as I discover them.
