Fountain of Youth Archeological Park

No visit to St. Augustine is complete without a visit to the world famous Fountain of Youth. The newly renovated Planetarium takes visitors back in time to view the same night sky that Ponce de Leon saw as he sailed into our harbor and you will learn how the early explorers used the stars to guide their voyages. Everyone gets to take a drink from the fabled fountain that Ponce de Leon was searching for. Stroll through the gardens abundant with local flora and fauna while elegant peacocks roam the grounds among the visitors.

 

St. Augustine Sightseeing Tour

Over 430 years of history will be highlighted as you embark on your Step-On Guided Tour of St. Augustine, the Nation's Oldest City. Discover the roots of the Timucuan Indians that were native to the North Florida coast and their contributions to the Spanish settlers. Learn of several failed attempts to take over the colony and how the colonists struggled against fire, disease, and threats from neighboring colonies. See the vast British influence on architecture and learn about the Flagler Era. Henry Flagler, the Father of Florida Tourism, made St. Augustine a winter destination for wealthy Northerners in the late 1800s. Your tour includes a guided walking tour of the Mission of Nombre de Dios, the landing site of the founder of St. Augustine, Pedro Menendez. This site, where the first Catholic Mass was held in the new world, was proclaimed by President Kennedy as "America's Most Sacred Acre."

 

Daytona International Speedway

Embark on an exciting guided tour through the historical sites of Daytona International Speedway. Venture behind-the-scenes and discover what makes Daytona the "World Center of Racing" and the leader in motorsports entertainment.

You'll take a trip around the track, explore the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garages, check out the Drivers Meeting Room and Gatorade Victory Lane.
