Jupiter: See the Light
Looming above the Jupiter coastline is a landmark known to generations of travelers – the venerable Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. Constructed in 1860, it stands today as a testament to the rich maritime history of Palm Beach County. The lighthouse site also encompasses Native American burial mounds, a history museum in a restored World War II building, nature trails and beachfront vistas.
