We invite you to visit us for a fascinating, informative, entertaining tour of Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park, the original site of the Nation’s oldest city. Located in the area first explored by Juan Ponce de Leon in 1513 and settled by Pedro Menendez de Aviles in 1565, historic St. Augustine is the oldest successful European settlement in the United States. Colonial America started right HERE, 55 years before the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, and 42 years before Jamestown! With a long, rich history spanning 4,000 years, the Fountain of Youth Park will delight and amaze you. Whether you visit for an hour or take all day, our 15 waterfront acres will provide the whole family with hours of enjoyment.
And if you are getting married, your Special Day deserves a uniquely special location. Celebrate your nuptials on the beautiful grounds of our Nation’s most historic location, Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth. The Park features 15 lush, bayfront acres overlooking Matanzas Bay and St. Augustine Inlet. The views are simply stunning. Over 30 peacocks roam among live oak and magnolia trees. Our 3,000 square foot Events Pavilion combines with the Park’s incredible beauty to establish your romantic mood and create timeless memories.
Whether you are touring, vacationing, or getting married, the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park remains your perfect destination!
