It is no wonder Coastal Living ranked Jupiter as one of the 15 Happiest Seaside Towns in the USA! With beautiful beaches, an abundance of activities, and legendary landmarks, Jupiter is the perfect location to live in luxury. Here is just a sampling of things to see and do in the Jupiter Inlet region.
Climb the Jupiter Lighthouse and visit the museum
Hike through history as you make your way along a path to the renowned Jupiter Lighthouse! The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum welcomes everyone to gaze at the ground’s 5,000 years of history, including Spanish expeditions, shipwrecks, and local legends. Whether you embark on the moonrise or sunset tour, or join a guided history tour, visiting the 105-foot monument should make its way to the top of your bucket list. From the top of the landmark, an unbeatable view of Jupiter, the Intracoastal, and Atlantic Ocean, as well as the occasional manatee sighting, can be enjoyed.
Visit Dubois Park and the Jupiter Inlet
Dubois Park is nestled along the shore of the Jupiter Inlet, and is the perfect spot to admire the natural beauty of Jupiter. Whether you’re watching boats head out to sea, looking out for manatees or stingrays that swim along the rim of the Intracoastal, or enjoying the gentle breeze by palm trees, this spot is perfect for those who wish to bask in the tropical paradise. There is a swimming area, small lagoon, and sandy paths that lead towards an overlook of the Atlantic Ocean at Dubois.
Snorkel at Cato’s Bridge
Cato’s Bridge spans the Intracoastal Waterway and connects Jupiter’s mainland to Jupiter Inlet Colony, and also serves as an incredible snorkeling destination. Jupiter is teeming with sea life, and this bridge is just one place to witness the bounty of marine animals. At high tide, crystal clear ocean water flows into the inlet, making snorkeling around the small bridge irresistible. Native fishes, such as yellowtail snapper, angelfish, and hog snapper, in addition to manatees and eagles rays, can be seen cruising along. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled, as you never know what incredible marine life can float beside you!
Dine out along Love Street at waterfront restaurants
Find authentic, ‘Fresh from Florida’ coastal cuisine at one of the many waterfront restaurants in Jupiter. Delicious local fare can be found in restaurants such as Guanabanas, U-Tiki, and Jetty’s Waterfront Restaurant-all of which boast their scenic settings. One of Jupiter’s best attributes is its waterfront restaurants, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the food and view!
