Learn about his transportation of the first herd of pigs to the new world, his search for gold, his interactions with the Native Americans, and his crossing of the Mississippi River, making him the first European to do so. De Soto National Memorial park in Bradenton, Fla., commemorates De Soto’s exploration of Florida. Free. Lunches available for pre-order from Jason’s Deli for $6 per person. Space is limited.
