About Jupiter, Florida

The area around Jupiter, Florida, was originally populated by Native American tribes, but its history goes back to prehistoric times. However, Juan Ponce de Leon, a Spanish explorer, was probably the first European to set foot in the area.

By the 19th century there were settlers in the area where Jupiter is now. The Seminole Indians were also in the area, having arrived in their canoes which they paddled through the Everglades.

What to do in Jupiter, Florida

Jupiter's culture is closely linked to the sea. So why not go and see the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse during your stay? It was built in 1860 and is a popular tourist spot.

As it's on the coast, fish and seafood feature prominently on menus in Jupiter. Some of the dishes are inspired by Mexican cuisine, others by American and European. Harborside Place is a great place to eat… and shop, too! If you visit on a Sunday, you'll find a small outdoor market where you can pick up souvenirs and tasty treats.

If you’re traveling with kids, visit the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary with its cougars, bobcats and black bears. You can stroll around it and learn about these exciting animals.

Go shark diving for a truly terrific (but terrifying) experience. You can go with or without a cage, but take expert advice. If you don't feel sharks are your thing, why not hire a kayak or canoe? Best to make it a lake trip, rather than the open ocean.

Take the family to one of the parks in Jupiter. Try Dubois Park for a picnic with the kids. Alternatively, visit Riverbend Park and try mountain-biking, hiking or walking there.
