Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, Jupiter

The site of one of Florida's tallest lighthouses, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum sits on a hill once mistaken for a Native American burial mound. Completed in 1860, the lighthouse stands 32 m (105 ft) tall, its light visible from as far as 46 km (29 mi) away. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, the lighthouse offers tours to the top of its tower for panoramic views of the surrounding area. Before you climb to the top, visit the history museum located in a building used for naval housing during World War II.

  • Great local area attraction. Can hang out and watch the boats and yachts go by. Nice gift shop. Very reasonable to tour the lighthouse. Guided or self-guided options available. Staff very friendly as well. Plenty of free parking.
  • This location use to be owned by the military. It has an interesting history and is very informative. Make sure to visit the museum. That is were the restrooms are as well. The lighthouse is accessible. There are landing sections for a break, if needed, when heading up the lighthouse. Ask questions and get answers. They are a very nice staff. Take your time and take pictures.
