April 3, 2013 is a big day in Florida’s history. In fact it is the anniversary of there being a place with the name Florida. The place was already here of course; it just was not known as Florida, or La Florida, until Juan Ponce de Leon called it that on April 3, 1513.
The anniversary is not going unnoticed in St. Augustine which will see a morning filled with activities marking the big day which include four events all open to the public.

While the exact location of Ponce de Leon’s landing is not know, historical documents record that on April 2, 1513, his expedition’s navigator logged the ship’s position at 30 degrees 8 minutes (approximate location here), just south of current day Ponte Vedra Beach and just north of St. Augustine. The following day, April 3, Ponce de León and his crew came ashore and founded La Florida for Spain.
