Castillo de San Marcos
Let’s face it, the Castillo is awesome. Visiting a 17th century Spanish fort is cool enough, but getting to touch and examine all these ancient artillery pieces on the gun deck? That significantly ups the cool factor. Don’t you wonder where this particular cannon is pointing? Boaters? Dolphins? Colonial Englishmen? (Hey, you never know).
Fountain of Youth
I love this shot of the springhouse from a few autumns back. While the ‘youth water’ may be a little kitschy, it’s also an American icon, so come on, try a little. :-) Besides, the inside of the springhouse is full of colorful displays like this, so even if you don’t go for the whole ‘fountain of youth’ spiel, there’s still plenty to see.
