Fountain of Youth

Drink the regenerative elixir at the fabled spring -- and leave younger than when you arrived! 1937 neon entryway arch lets everyone know they're near a classic tourist wonder.

Fountain of Youth Water

Take a swig and be young again, but first you have to pay for the bottle.

Mother of the Fountain of Youth

Fountain of Youth.

Fountain of Youth

The water from the Fountain of Youth tastes like well-water (I'm not sure what I was expecting). The park is actually kinda cool -- small, slightly over-priced for what it actually is... since it is Florida's first tourist attraction, it is outdated looking and felt like a step back in time to the seventies.

Fountain of Youth

A touristy place to visit and get a bottle of magical water from the Fountain of Youth. Every hour or so they set off cannons, and the peacocks are trained to flash their feathers for tourists.
