Jupiter Inlet Light’s unusual location on the mainland makes it a US 1 landmark and a highlight of any visit to the Jupiter area.
The property on which the light and museum sits is likely to be some of the most valuable in Palm Beach County. It’s a treat to visit, having the light built on a mound, as well as a small but modern museum, great views of the Intracoastal Waterway and Jupiter Inlet, plus one of the largest council trees “ficus altissima” in the state.
From the top of the light you have an excellent view of the inlet, the southern tip of Jupiter Island, the drawbridge for US Route 1 and the Loxahatchee River heading inland.
A good place to view the Jupiter Inlet Light is located across the Indian River on Jupiter Island in the Blowing Rocks Nature Preserve, which is a terrific place to visit in its own right.
