Experience the Fountain of Youth
The grounds at The Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park are the original site of St. Augustine, the Nation’s oldest city. The area was first explored by Ponce de Leon in 1513 and was later settled by Pedro Menendez de AViles in 1565, thus making it the oldest successful European settlement in the country. The park is located on St. Augustine’s waterfront and offers visitors an unparalleled experience as they learn about the first Spanish settlers to the area, along with the native Timucans who lived on these lands prior to settlement.
As you explore the grounds of the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park, you’ll see an in-progress archaeological dig site, along with several re-created Spanish and Timucuan buildings and dwellings. Other points of interest in the park include the reconstructed Nombre de Dios Mission, the 600-foot Founders Riverwalk, and the Observation Tower, which offers a beautiful view of the water and surrounding area.
And then, of course, there is the Fountain of Youth legend itself! Ponce de Leon was obsessed with finding magical healing waters that would keep him young, and legend has it that he found exactly that here in St. Augustine. There are a number of conflicting stories about the Fountain of Youth and Ponce de Leon himself, but you might as well take a sip from this famous fountain, just to be sure, right?
However it is you explore the beautiful Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park, we’re sure you’ll enjoy learning more about this beautiful town and soaking up the historic ambiance around every corner.
