Away from all the hustle-bustle, most people who visit Cedar Key say that time seems to slow down while they are here. Spend a little time in here and you’ll discover that the town has a very rich history. It is home to two historical museums, the Cedar Key Museum State Park and the Cedar Key Historical Society Museum. There is also a fair amount of information on the internet about Cedar Key. Click [here] for information from Wikipedia.
The city has a total area of 2.1 square miles, of which 0.97 square miles is land and 1.2 square miles, or 54.28%, is water. That translates into a total acreage of about 1344 acres, for both land and water. By comparison, the Walt Disney World Complex is roughly 25,000 acres, almost 20 times the size of Cedar Key!
There are numerous boat rental and water tour outfits to choose from. Private and charter sport fishing is very popular here, as is kayaking and sailboarding. And of course a favorite thing to do is rent a golf cart and explore the entire island…
I hope you enjoy your visit to SeeCedarKey.com.

A month ago I made plans to visit Cedar Key with my husband, whom of which we were celebrating 30 yrs of marriage.
We rented Aunts Mays Cottage, which is a beautiful spot on the island. While searching for Cedar Key info, I found your site and submitted a poem.
Along with celebrating the joy of 30 yrs of being married, I needed a quiet place to reflect as I lost my Mother after a long illness on April 1st this year. These past few days have been the most peaceful times I have had in many years. Cedar Key is awesome.
Attached are a couple of photos I snapped as storms approached a couple of different afternoons. Thought you may enjoy it. I have not cropped or straightened so they may be crooked since the wind was blowing quite hard and I did not want to set tripod up during storm.
Thanks for having a website that is a joy to look at. I love good photography (taking it and looking at it) and yours is awesome. I will keep check on your site for more pictures and we will be returning to Cedar Key.
Have a safe and happy weekend.
I’m sorry to hear about your mother… but, congratulations on 30 years! I’m glad you were able to find some solace in Cedar Key. Thank you for the interesting photos. With your permission I have entered them into a blog post.
Thank you for your kind words. Especially coming from a graphic professional, I am really flattered. As you well know, Cedar Key is very eclectic and picturesque town. I truly enjoy trying to capture the natural beauty of the area. I’m very happy that you enjoy my photography.
You don't know me at all, but I ran across your site last year around this time when I did a search for great horned owls in the area. I am an amateur photographer in Gainesville, just started about 15 months ago and love to take wildlife/nature photos.
Just wanted to say thanks for all the updates on the blog and how much I enjoy your photos and daily updates. It's nice to see such great work, and always fun to see what's going on in cedar key. I try to make it there every so often, but don't get by as much as I want to see those amazing sunsets and birds.
I was inspired by your blog update today on giving to the homeless, and just thought you would like to know how much others enjoy your work.
Thanks again and keep up the great photography!
It was a pleasure meeting you today and hearing your story of how you discovered Cedar Key.
Thank you very much for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit.
Your new look is outstanding. Very mod and clean and sharp. Congratulations!
We were in Cedar Key on Wednesday (1/16). Had a bowl of clam chowder at Tony's. Great stuff.
Keep up the good work.
I am looking for a big print…….40×40 ??
