Jupiter Things to Do

  • 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...

Jupiter Restaurants

  • Cheaper than Chops

    We were driving around Juno Beach in the dark trying to find a place to eat. The place that the girl at the motel recommended either wasn't open or was too busy. We ended up back in Jupiter and stopped in Bluff's Square (a shopping center). First we went to look at the menu outside of BarryMore's, but that was too expensive. This was next...

  • Prime Steaks & Chops

    We were looking for a place to eat and saw this place, but the menu prices were so high that we went elsewhere. Their website says:Only USDA Grade Prime cuts of beef, aged a minimum of four weeks to ensure flavor and tenderness, are served. That's a USDA classification accorded to just three percent of the meat produced in America.Prime rib at...

  • Pancho's and Pepe'sThis is in...

    Pancho's and Pepe'sThis is in Tequesta which borders Jupiter. It's the only Mexican restaurant that I know of close by. It is also one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in the area. We are vegetarian, so the cheese enchilladas are my favorite. They have lots to choose from and other vegetarian dishes as well.

Jupiter Warnings and Dangers

  • Escort Required

    You MUST go with a guide onto the lighthouse grounds. You are not allowed to wander around at will. This is a Coast Guard rule (photo 3 which says "Lighthouse Visitors are not permitted to walk back without an escort. Please wait here for a tour guide")By road, the lighthouse is really hard to find. Even with directions. I could find it on the...

    The lighthouse keeper's house has burned down, but there remains this small cemetery. The small cemetery which contains stillborn or young children of the lighthouse keepers is on the grounds of Jupiter Lighthouse which is located on the northern bank of the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter Lighthouse Park in the city of Jupiter

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The whole reason for the lighthouse, is of course to warn sailors and boaters.

    We have not used Jupiter Inlet by boat - it is not a Class A inlet. But there are lots of boating activities in the area including the marinas below, which we have not used.

Jupiter Favorites

  • Jupiter Lighthouse

    Jupiter Inlet lighthouse is another one that was built by George G. Meade. The 105 ft brick tower is painted brick red; the lantern is painted black. The lighthouse can be shorter because it is on a mound that is about 14 feet tall. The original rotating 1st order Fresnel lens remains in use. The principal keeper's house burned in 1927, but there...

    The state and Coast Guard carried out a major renovation of the tower during 1999-2000, during which archaeologists discovered the light is built on a 14 foot tall Indian mound. In 2008, the light station and its surroundings were designated an Outstanding Natural Area, and in 2009 the lighthouse received $1 million in federal stimulus funding,...
