    Travel Reporter Lauren Tjaden takes a tour of a quaint, old fashioned vacation spot near Gainesville.

    Lauren Tjaden: When you come into Cedar Key and you see those little islands and all that water, it feels magical.

    Robert Goodlett: Cedar Key is really one of the last old Florida towns and we are right here on the coast and the sunsets are just absolutely beautiful. You never know what you are going to get; there are so many areas that you can see the sunsets out here, and it's so peaceful.

    Alice Phillips-Oakley: Everybody that comes here just loves the atmosphere of Cedar Key, because it's so laidback and so relaxed and it's a friendly island. You instantly bond with people around here. Everybody is very friendly and you just feel like you have known them forever. Kellie Parkin: I crossed that Number Four Bridge and I saw the view and the water and I rolled my windows down and I breathed in that air and I thought, oh my God, I am home. And I still get goose bumps when I think of about that. Every time I think I am so lucky to live in paradise.
