Juan Ponce de Leon Monument
save place
St. Augustine is the antidote to Florida tourism
America's oldest city was a relief after a few days of theme park overload. Walk the old streets, explore the fort overlooking the harbor- amble aimlessly and it just might change your mind about Florida. The Ponce de Leon statue sits in a traffic circle, which reminds me of the Columbus statue in Barcelona. Take an extra day to soak up some history.
