Levy County was founded in 1845 and was named after Florida's first senator, David Levy Yulee. Levy County is a visitor's paradise with the small island of Cedar Key's romantic charm, shops, restaurants, festivals, and art galleries, as well as Chiefland's Train Depot Museum, Suwannee Valley Theater, Watermelon Festival, Christmas Parade of Lights, and Williston Peanut Festival. The woods of Levy County are a sportsman's paradise for hunting and fishing, and divers come from near and far to explore and enjoy the underwater caves of Manatee Springs Park.
