(CNN) – Five hundred years ago this week, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon – a man I once impersonated for corporate parties in St. Augustine (don’t ask) – landed on a pristine beach somewhere on the east coast of the Florida Peninsula.
On that day in 1513, he landed in a simpler Florida. The only residents were Native Americans, and historians have not yet found conclusive evidence that they had "$20 Spring Break Sink Or Swim" drink specials.
Legend tells that de Leon was on a quest to find the Fountain of Youth. History suggests he was hunting for undiscovered islands to claim.
