The Other Side of Florida
Florida is a place with many hidden gems of attractions. As much as the state entertains millions of tourists, not all its attractions are visited. Many of the visitors do not know there are more places to visit than those they cover. They need to make their holiday destinations different next time they are there.
Cedar Key is a town which reflects the old Florida tradition. When tourists are gone, the town is left with few residents, who use the one road on and off the key. This results in the slowest pace of life. There are beautiful boutique stores in the downtown area, surrounded by wonderful oak trees. The key hosts the few remaining spoonbills, which is ideal for birdwatchers.
Since it hosts the largest collection of psychics ever recorded in one place, Cassadaga is called the central location for psychics. There is the availability of a lot of native American crafts, candles, and precious stones. Spiritualism is what attracts many people to the area. There are also some modern amenities, such as a modern bookshop, cafes, and hotels. Another attraction is the spiritual readings held at the Cassadaga hotel.
