This early movie begins with a series of shots of St. Augustine, including the Fountain of Youth and the oldest house. Next, people are shown catching turtles at Silver Springs. The film continues with brief scenes of: Marineland; Palm Beach; Bok Tower; water skiing at Cypress Gardens; aerial and street scenes in St. Petersburg; Miami; Tin Can camping; Bayfront Park; fishing; Biscayne Bay; horse racing in Hialeah; flamingos; wildlife scenes; Seminoles in the Everglades (aerial of a village and children); sailboat races; and water skiing at night. The color is faded and the film is a little jumpy. Produced by Castle Films.
