    By Lauren Tjaden

    Cedar Key, a small artist enclave and fishing village on Florida's Gulf Coast southwest of Gainesville, encompasses just 2.1 square miles. Too big for you? Consider that of that, most is water — less than a square mile is solid land. But on that solid land you'll find history, relaxing salt air, some of Florida's best sunsets and more friendly Old Florida character than you'd think possible.
