The Top Attractions in Jupiter, FL, For Locals or Tourists

Jupiter, Fla., nestled along the state’s southeastern coast, is emerging as one of South Florida’s hottest real estate markets. Clients I’ve worked with love Jupiter’s stunning beaches, vibrant culture, and wealth of outdoor activities. Whether you’re a longtime resident or first-time visitor, there are plenty of things to see and do in this coastal paradise. Let’s explore the top attractions that make Jupiter a must-visit destination for anyone seeking sun, fun, and relaxation.

Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum

A beacon of history and heritage, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum is a must-see landmark for visitors of all ages. It won’t be easy, but if you have the stamina, climb to the top of this iconic 1860 structure for the best panoramic views of the coastline and learn about the area's rich maritime history through engaging exhibits and guided tours.

DuBois Park

Escape to nature at DuBois Park, where lush greenery meets pristine shoreline along the Jupiter Inlet. Picnic under the shade of swaying palm trees, swim in the lagoon's calm waters, or launch a kayak for a scenic paddle along the Intracoastal Waterway. With playgrounds, picnic pavilions, and ample relaxing space, DuBois Park offers a perfect retreat for families with young children and any outdoor enthusiast. Bring a mask and snorkel for great snorkeling along the cove rocks!

Jupiter Beach

No trip to Jupiter is complete without a visit to its beautiful beaches, and Jupiter Beach is among the best in the southeast. Stretching for miles along the Atlantic Coast, this pristine shoreline offers soft sands, sparkling turquoise waters, and plenty of sunshine for sunbathing, swimming, and beachcombing. Plus, with pet-friendly areas and stunning sunrise views, Jupiter Beach has something for everyone to enjoy.

Maltz Jupiter Theatre

Experience world-class entertainment at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, a cultural cornerstone of the Jupiter community. From Broadway musicals and classic plays to innovative productions and special events, this state-of-the-art theater offers something for theatergoers of all tastes. Be sure to check out the lineup of upcoming shows and plan a night out at the theater during your visit to Jupiter.

Busch Wildlife Sanctuary

Get up close and personal with Florida's native wildlife at the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, a haven for injured and orphaned animals. Explore nature trails, observe birds of prey in flight, and meet resident reptiles, mammals, and amphibians during guided tours and educational programs. With its mission of wildlife rehabilitation, it’s one of Jupiter’s most educational and fun activities for visitors of all ages.

Juno Beach Pier

Cast a line and reel in the fun at the Juno Beach Pier, a beloved landmark offering some of the best fishing in the area. Stretching 990 feet into the Atlantic Ocean, this iconic pier is your go-to spot for fishing pompano, snapper, and kingfish. With stunning ocean views and a scenic walking path, the Juno Beach Pier is a popular spot for sightseeing and relaxation. BONUS: On a day with the right conditions, surfers love paddling out on the pier's south side.

Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf

Jupiter is well-known for its many golf courses, but Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf is unique for its kitschy appeal to players of all ages. This tropical-themed mini-golf course features challenging holes, cascading waterfalls, and lush landscaping, providing a thrilling outdoor experience for the whole family. After your game, stop by the adjacent Burger Shack for delicious burgers, shakes, and snacks, and let your kids play on the attached outdoor playground while you wait for your food!

Golf Club of Jupiter

The consensus best public course in the Jupiter area, the Golf Club of Jupiter offers a traditional layout against a picturesque backdrop. All but three of the holes are within 433 yards from the back tees, while the closer red tees are ideal for new and/or young golfers. If you’ve moved to Jupiter and want to improve your game, sign up for the reasonably-priced six-week clinic at Golf Club of Jupiter. After your round, relax at the clubhouse, which offers excellent dining options and a welcoming atmosphere. 

Square Grouper Tiki Bar

Square Grouper Tiki Bar is an iconic waterfront destination in Jupiter. Famous for its laid-back vibe, this open-air bar is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy drinks, water views, and a beautiful sunset. Besides tropical drinks, the bar regularly hosts live music, making it a quintessential Jupiter experience.

Baseball Game at Roger Dean Stadium

Though known amongst baseball diehards nationwide, Roger Dean Stadium is one of Jupiter’s best-kept secrets. It’s the spring training site for the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals each February and March. If your kids like baseball, bring them with baseballs and Sharpies to get autographs before or after the game. During summer, Roger Dean Stadium is home to minor league games with intimate settings, allowing you to get close to the action.

Pontiki Party Cruise

If you’re in Jupiter for any length of time, you’re likely to spot daytime revelers cruising the waters in tiki-style pontoon boats. These unique flotation vehicles offer a fun and relaxing way to explore the scenic Intracoastal Waterway. Music, drinks, and snacks make for a festive atmosphere any time you and your friends are in the partying mood. Pontiki Party Cruises are great for special occasions or casual outings.

Snorkeling off Coral Cove

The underwater world of Coral Cove Beach is a prime snorkeling destination in Jupiter. Its clear, turquoise waters are teeming with marine life, including colorful fish, sea turtles, and stunning coral formations. Whether you’re an experienced snorkeler or a novice, Coral Cove offers an accessible and thrilling adventure beneath the waves. Bring your snorkel gear and prepare to be amazed by the natural beauty and biodiversity of this underwater paradise.
