Cedar Key

posted in: Florida | 0

I drove over to Cedar Key on the west coast of Florida to visit and climb the lighthouse on Seahorse Key. The light is only open to the public three times a year, with the first time being this past Saturday. I took a boat cruise out of Cedar Key, and was greeted by a park ranger at the light who gave a brief history of the light. I was surprised to learn the the light is also used as a dorm for the University of Florida students who work at the marine laboratory there.
