Fountain of Youth


The Fountain of Youth is a 15-acre park established to preserve Seloy, a Native American village that Ponce de Leon visited when he arrived in Florida in 1513. One of the primary reasons poor ol' Ponce traveled to the New World was to find the fabled fountain. Well, the park claims to have it. You can taste this sulfurous potion in the Spring House -- but no guarantees it'll work. The Fountain of Youth is open daily from 9 AM to 5 PM year-round except Christmas Day. Admission is $7.50 for adults, $6 for seniors over 60, and $4.50 for kids ages 6-12. It's located at 11 Magnolia Avenue, at the intersection with Willow Street. If you're in central St. Augustine, drive north on San Marco, take a right on Ocean Avenue and then a left on Magnolia.
