Which explorer would have influenced you to immigrate from Europe to the area they explored?

The explorer that would influenced me would be, Juan Ponce De Leon because, he found and named Florida, he was the oldest European to settle in Porto Rico.

It would be cool to know a little bit of Florida's history if i traveled there. I could just say," Juan Ponce De Leon named Florida. Also what if he left some things behind? They are probably in a museum in Florida.

Juan was the oldest European to settle in Porto Rico. That would be cool to see if there are more Europeans that have settled after Juan. Plus there could be a place that shows us where he use to live and eat. We could also see what he would wear and if he was nice or not.
