Visit America's First Colony. Founded by Pedro Menendez on THIS ACTUAL SITE 42 years before Jamestown and 55 years before Plymouth Rock, The Fountain of Youth is the first settlement area in our Nation's Oldest City. There is so much to do here: Drink from Ponce's Spring of Eternal Hope, see Stars in our Planetarium, and visit the Timucua Indian Village of Seloy, and hear our Spanish Cannon roar! If you visit Florida, you must visit here. Our 15 waterfront acres are available for weddings.
