About an hour's drive southwest of Gainesville, the tiny enclave of Cedar Key is a quaint, old-fashioned, Old Florida vacation spot – one that offers lovely beaches, productive fishing opportunities and lush natural preserves.
It's a place that's short on traffic lights and long on relaxation. Cedar Key's houses and stores perch above the Gulf of Mexico on stilts, with the water lapping at their bellies.
It's easy to find a tasty clam chowder and a cold brew in Cedar Key.
The people here smile and wave, and the police drive spiffed-up golf carts.
Doesn't that sound like it might be your cup of sunshine?
