Jupiter Commerce & Culture
Jupiter’s most recognizable landmark skies 108 feet atop a 48-foot-high dune in its distinctive shade of red. The historic brick Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse—constructed in 1860—often symbolizes Jupiter itself: a beacon for those searching for serene Florida living. The town hugs the Loxahatchee River and the lighthouse’s namesake inlet, carrying the oceangoing lifestyle of nearby bounteous beaches into a series of islands, canals, and lakes. As one might then expect, there is a particular seaside ethos to life in Jupiter. But while this perhaps cements the town as a go-to for fishing, watersports, and various yacht club happenings, there are also ample parks and trails to explore on land. It’s also home to perhaps more golf courses than is strictly necessary, but everything amounts to creating the fine-tuned, well-heeled feel of one of the most iconic communities in the region.
