Located in historic St. Augustine, the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park offers a 15-acre historical site of where St. Augustine came to be in the year 1565. Guests can enjoy seeing stars from the park’s planetarium, exploring the native Timucua village, watching an old cannon fire, visit the two-story Discovery Globe, take a walk through the waterfront outdoor park, and much more.
Much of the park is not wheelchair accessible. Many of the paths are gravel or woodchips which can be difficult. The woman selling the tickets does mention this however and only charges half price for the wheelchair user. Would recommend for a few hours as exhibits and planetarium were educational. Good gift shop open to all visitors, whether you pay to enter the park or not.

Enjoyed my time at the fountain of youth. I really enjoyed the history behind everything. I enjoyed the demonstrations. You can walk out on a long dock through the estuary. It was so pretty. I didn't enjoy my drink from the fountain. It has a sulfur smell and odd taste to me. Though you have to drink from it when you visit! The peacocks were beautiful. You can even feed them. The gift shop has peanuts you can buy.

Went here as part of our Old town trolley tour package. Really interesting. They have the alleged fountain of youth that Ponce De Leon found. They have a archaeological area were they found old buildings from the original European settlers. There are recreated Minorca villages and old world villages. There are live demonstrations throughout the park. And plenty of Peacocks and Peahens. Worth a visit.
West Jefferson, North Carolina
this is a pretty good place to visit but kind of expensive. But very educational. It's pretty cool to actually drink from the fountain. I would recommend
