Calling all seafood lovers! The Big Bend Shellfish Trail is a gastronomical exploration of dock-to-table destinations along the Big Bend coast. By following the longest shellfish trail in the U.S. and first in Florida, you can eat your fill of clams, crabs, scallops, shrimp and oysters and also learn about their fisheries. Here in Cedar Key, you will visit educational kiosks and other points of interest that shine a light on the hidden world of local shellfish. How are they farmed or caught? What are the boats and gear types used? Where can I get some of that delicious bounty? Follow the trail to find out...
This is the first stop on the tour and the next several stops are best accessed by walking. Find a parking spot and head over to the next stop to keep going.
