Jupiter Lighthouse -1860
In order to get into the lighthouse, you have to buy a ticket. But the museum entrance is not obvious. The museum was $5 each and it was an additional $2 to take a lighthouse tour. The museum has nothing to do with the lighthouse, and I didn't think it was worth $5. The lighthouse OTOH was worth more.
Current prices (2011) are $9 for adults, $5 children ages 6-18, 5 & under free. Admission includes Museum exhibits and Lighthouse Tour. Last lighthouse tour at 4pm. Tower-top tour restrictions: climbers must be 48” or taller, no flip-flops or spike heeled shoes. Food & drink, tripods, pets and wet clothing are not permitted on tour or in the museum.
In August 2004 the tower was closed to climbing to replace about 50 stairway brackets; it reopened late in the year. However, Hurricane Jeanne sandblasted the paint from the upper portion of the tower, and in October 2005 the light was temporarily extinguished for repairs. It reopened in December.
We went with a guide up to the lighthouse (I didn't climb it). You are supposed to have a guide whenever you are on the grounds. I didn't get to go into the oil house.
Hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 10am-5pm, last lighthouse tour at 4pm.

Home of Roger Dean Stadium
See the spring training home of both the Florida Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals.
This is also the home of the Jupiter Hammerheads (Marlins A) and Palm Beach Cardinals (Cardinals A).
After the game, stop by one of the many eateries. I ate at Rooney's Public House and the fish and chips were wonderful! There is a nice pub atmosphere mixed with Pittsburgh Steeler paraphernalia.
