Here are five of our must-see experiences to add to your calendar for your next Jupiter vacation.
1. Juno Pier: More than Just a Fishing Spot
Juno Pier is not merely a customary fishing pier—it’s a local favorite and a 990-foot vista point where deep-blue ocean views meet beachside fun. With a gift shop and snack bar, the Pier House offers fishing gear for rent to both seasoned fishermen and beginners alike. And the sunsets? Well, we highly recommend sticking around to capture the golden glow.
2. Loggerhead Marinelife Center: Witness Sea Turtle Recovery
At Loggerhead Marinelife Center, it’s all about preserving marine life. The facility cares for approximately 100 injured sea turtles, rehabilitating them before returning them to their ocean home. Curious to learn more? Take a guided tour to learn about the center’s research, conservation efforts, and the extraordinary journey these sea turtles undergo under the care of dedicated professionals.
3. Carlin Park: A Beachside Playground for Families
Carlin Park is the epitome of Florida beach life. Covering a 3,000-foot stretch of sandy beaches and crystal-blue waters, this park offers activities perfect for family bonding and relaxation. Think beach volleyball, an easygoing exercise loop, and bocce ball games. With lifeguards stationed for safety, it’s an idyllic setting to enjoy a laid-back beach day under the warming Florida sun.
4. Jupiter’s Waterways and Mangrove Forests: An Eco-Adventure
Why limit your adventure to shoreline activities when you can venture out on the water? Explore Jupiter’s hidden waterways and mangrove forests by boat and enjoy an enchanting eco-adventure. Boat rentals, kayak rentals, and SUP rentals let you quietly navigate these waterways, offering a chance to encounter Florida’s wildlife, such as manatees, while being surrounded by the lush green of the mangroves—an immersive nature experience that is both serene and exciting.
5. Loxahatchee River Battlefield Park: Stepping Back in Time
Venture one step further to Jupiter’s Loxahatchee River Battlefield Park, where local history comes alive. As one of the most significant historical sites in Palm Beach County, this park offers visitors an opportunity to reflect on the events of the Second Seminole War, which unfolded here.
The park boasts several hiking trails that wind through its scenic landscape, offering glimpses of native wildlife along the way. You can connect with local park rangers who are always open to sharing intriguing stories of the past and insight into the park’s ongoing preservation efforts.
