You may not find the Fountain of Youth here, as was once promised to European explorers, but the DeLeon Springs are a great place to bring the family for a sunny day out. Named after Spanish treasure-seeker Ponce DeLeon, the waters are home to a mill with a 100-ft waterwheel that was originally used to crush sugar cane somewhere around two-hundred years ago; later, it fed confederate troops during the Civil War by grinding corn.
