This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.
I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!
The answer to yesterday’s place (#273) is Scotts Bluff National Monument, Nebraska, USA
Where in the World is Gary? #274
Latitude — 29° 53′ North

This was the earliest Spanish colony in the New World (1565), and is located on the site where explorer Ponce de Leon landed in 1513.
Henry Flagler, of railroad fame, made this place an important tourist destination for the wealthy. Flagler’s hotels are now part of a college, named in his memory.
This place contains the oldest masonry fort in the US (1672).
