Conquistadors come ashore in a reenactment of De Soto's alleged landing in Manatee County. Through "film magic," a crewman is transported through time to the present to see what the area is now like.

Viewers see Sunshine Skyway (with the second span under construction), Ringling Art Museum, Gamble Mansion, Circus Hall of Fame, Lipizzaner Stallions, Bishop Planetarium, South Florida Museum and Pittsburgh Pirates spring training.
