EXPLORING CEDAR KEY

The last few days we have been out and about in cedar key exploring. Over at the state park, they have a museum and an original 1930’s style home. They also have their a plaque to John Muir, who made a 1000 mile walk, journey from Indiana to Cedar key. How in the heck did he do it back then beats me.

We also went to the historical museum and learned a lot about Cedar key ,which I will talk about in another post. We then wanted to see a sunset and the noted place around here is at the Tiki Bar, about a mile or so out of Cedar Key at a small Rv park, 8 spots and a small hotel. It was quite the unique place to say the least. We bought a few drinks and saw a great sunset that night. As the pictures show it is a very quirky place, which is nothing more than a four polled hut with a room and bottles for the walls, all motored in. You can get any kind of drink you want here and is noted as the place to go world-wide.

We also went to breakfast at the world-famous Annie’s. Why it is world famous, I don’t know. The breakfast was very good, and again a place of the quirkiness of the area.

After breakfast we drove into town, and went to the beach. It’s a small beach but a beach none the less, it is surrounded by a lot of condo’s and a small park.

We then walked around the town a little, it is very small ,but has a lot of restaurants and gift shops on the main streets.

This is Cedar key all the shops and restaurants are on the left area by the loop . Condo’s and stuff to the right bottom, and the residential area is in the upper part of the photo. The center also has some shops, and was the main hub of the town back in the day.

Would you rather drive a golf cart or a car?  It doesn’t matter here.  The history of Cedar key is pretty neat ,so i will make a seperate post on that in the next day or so.
