    Fortresses, The Fountain of Youth, and Museums

    St. Augustine offers a long list of exciting attractions for people of all ages. Founded in 1565 by the Spanish, this city comes with a lot of history.

    The Castillo de San Marcos National Monument in St. Augustine is the oldest masonry fort in the United States. At over 315 years old, visitors who walk through the fortress walls are taking a trip through history.

    Due to a large amount of history in the city, there is no shortage of fun museums. The Lightner Museum, the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum, Potter’s Wax Museum, and the Spanish Military Hospital Museum are just a few that are located in this magnificent city.

    Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park is said to be the original landing site of the famous Spanish explorer, Ponce de Leon. The park spans 15 acres, and visitors can take a sip from the spring house, which is thought to be the Fountain of Youth that Ponce de Leon set sail for.
