Juan Ponce de Leon
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     There are lots of interesting sights to see in Florida. You are likely to already know about Disney's Magic Kingdom, Sea World, and Busch Gardens. Once you are touring Florida, you might also see that there are some interesting historical attractions.
 
2     St. Augustine, Florida, is the oldest city in the United States. It is older than the colonial city of Jamestown. In 1513, the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon landed near the present site of St. Augustine. A settlement was not built there until about 1565.
 
3     You will come across the name Ponce de Leon again if you stop to tour Florida's tallest lighthouse. The lighthouse is built on an inlet formerly called Mosquito Inlet where many ships had wrecked in the past. The lighthouse was built as a warning to sailing ships, and surely it saved many lives. It is now named Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station. About 150,000 tourists visit it each year.
