Description:

Cedar Key is made up of a chain of small barrier islands extending three miles out into the Gulf of Mexico; the currently inhabited keys are joined by short bridges (which also make popular fishing spots). Thirteen other islands make up one of the oldest National Wildlife Refuges in the country, providing habitat to vast numbers of migratory and shore birds. There are daily boat tours to the island of Atsena Otie, site of the original settlement and home to an Eberhard Faber pencil factory, but devastated by a hurricane at the end of the 19th century and never rebuilt. The coastal waters and tidal marshes of the Cedar Keys are a fisherman's paradise and support an important clam farming industry. Depending on the season and the weather, your catch of the day on inshore waters may include red drum, black drum or trout. The Old Florida Celebration of the Arts is easy to find. Take State Route 24 (Archer Road) out of Gainesville and drive southwest to the end of the road, about 60 miles. You can also pick up SR24 at Archer, Bronson or Otter Creek if you are coming from other directions. Aviation buffs can even fly here (www.airnav.com/airport/KCDK), as long as they can land and take off with about 2000 feet of runway.
