On The Road With Kitchen Warfare (Day 3)

5 Comments

cedar_crab Today we wanted to take advantage of our location and head over to Cedar Key, FL for lunch. Located on the West coast Cedar Key is a small island town of about 800 residents. Due to its geography (no interstates or big cities for miles and miles) it remains largely untouched by corporate commercialism. No fast food and no restaurant chains, in fact rarely do you see a recognizable business name at all. But still Cedar Key is a tourist town, just not for those looking for the glitz and lights of Disney. Instead Cedar Key is a haven for writers, artists and others seeking to enjoy a more pastoral experience. You can make a nice day of pursuing the shops and snacking on the food which is exactly what we did. Because we’re driving to Kissimmee in the morning we can’t spend an evening at Cedar Key this trip but it’s great fun when you can. There are some great restaurants in Cedar Key esp if you interested in natively prepared seafood but there are plenty of good choices if that’s not your thing. Prices for these well known and respected regional eateries are VERY reasonable as is lodging. The restaurants, bars and clubs along Dock Street come alive on weekend evenings and the friendly nature of people of all sorts makes for a great time. It’s like a Jimmy Buffet album come to life and its an experience I guarantee you’ll remember fondly.

Cedar Key

Recommended? Yes but only if you’re cool.

    I, too, had a memorable experience in Cedar Key and would also highly recommend it for all “Old Hippy” soulmates. Artistic, relaxing, peaceful. We stayed in the smallest hotel in America – One room above an art gallery. The views from all rooms, even the bathroom, were worthy of an oil canvas. Go! Alone, with girlfriends, with your husband. Just Go.
