Towards the Nothern region of Florida sits Cedar Key. Commonly referred to as "Florida's First Key" it is an island unlike the tropical scenes that are often home to cabana boys and drinks served in coconuts. Instead it is an island of old Florida. I've written about Cedar Key a few times because my parents… Continue reading The free activity you must do in Cedar Key

Experience fantastic riverside dining at Old Fish House

With a name like Old Fish House, you may not expect much. Or perhaps, you get the feeling that this is the salt water dive you've been craving. Located in Grant, FL (not too far from Vero Beach, FL nor Cocoa Beach, FL) this oceanside bar and grill offers elevated food in a casual atmosphere.
