June is almost here and we are half way through 2019 … can you believe it? It has been a very busy year for us and we look forward to all the great summer events coming our way.
Scalloping Season starts June 15th. This is a fun, low cost event that the whole family can enjoy. You can rent a boat at one of the many marina’s in the area or hire a local charter captain to show you one of their favorite “honey holes”. In July we celebrate our nation’s independence on July 4th and Cedar Key has another special event planned. “Shine Cedar Key” will take place on July 5th and they will light the Cedar Key Light Station at 9 pm. In addition to these two events don’t forget about all the wonderful outdoor activities this area has to offer. Fishing, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, shopping, springs, and a lot of good eating!
Our current magazine includes many of our great advertisers who continue to support us. We welcome Cedar Key Pizza and Subs to our magazine and next time you are in Cedar Key stop by and try them out! Located close to dock street they offer delicious pizzas and subs.
We have some informative articles again this month from both Toni Collins and Jeff Cary. If you are looking for history on the area or information/tidbits on the rivers you have come to the right place! Our charter captains and marina’s keep you up to speed on all the fishing in the area as well. The marinas and boat ramps have been packed lately so these are some must-reads for the avid fisherman.
Our sister publication, The Hidden Coast Real Estate Book continues to grow. We are publishing our sixth edition in May and our page count has jumped to 24! If you are looking to relocate to the area permanently or just coming for a short stay during the summer, please check it out!
Finally, listen for us on the local radio waves! We have partnered with Country Legends in Chiefland and Cross City and now you can hear us on their stations (93.1 and 96.3) and you can read about them in our magazines! Plenty of great classic country music – Patsy, Merle, Hank Sr. & Jr, Willie, Waylon, and the Boys plus area news, weather, and sports.
Thanks for reading our little magazine and be on the lookout for our July book. Our goal is to make that edition our biggest one yet!
