The Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; ghostly apparitions at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, formerly the Peabody Hotel; the Saint Augustine Monster, a real carcass that has never been positively identified; the White Lady, Julia, who haunts Rolling Acres Road in appropriately named Lady Lake, along with a hooded phantom; the ghosts of Miss Sunshine Gibson and Captain Wood in the historic, Cracker styled, Gibson Inn in Apalachicola; spirits of the Agustin Inn in the St Augustine Historic District, including a man in white, who walks through walls and who may also be the ghostly Chiles who "goes bump in the night"; and the pink, horned, serpentine monster of the St John's River, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.
