Ponce de Leon Statue

Battles a similar statue in Melbourne Beach, also erected in 2013. Ponce de Leon had no GPS or even paper maps in 1513, so the exact landing spot is fiercely debated.

Very easy to find on A1A at the North Beach Guana River Preserve. There's a beach access parking lot where the statue stands. Free to stop and snap a picture otherwise, $3 to park for a few hours.
