JUPITER INLET LIGHTHOUSE

We know many of you are limiting travel during these uncertain times.  Although we continue to feature trips and places to visit, we are not encouraging you to visit them until it is safe.  We want to support Florida's attractions and businesses during this situation, and hope you will plan to visit them when things get better.  In the meantime, enjoy them virtually from the comfort of your home.

The tower was first lit in 1860 and has a wonderful view of Jupiter Inlet, the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean.

In World War Two the lighthouse property served as a U.S. Navy radio detection station.  The station is credited with providing information that led to the sinking of more than 60 German submarines that had been torpedoing Allied ships along the Atlantic coast in 1943.

WHAT TO DO:

Tours of the lighthouse grounds and museum, including tower climbs, are available to the public. The lighthouse is on a large property that also includes nature walks and various scenic events such as lighthouse sunset and moonrise tours.

The lighthouse property also serves as a park and community center for the area and has a busy event schedule.  The museum is also open to the public and features many exhibits of Native American and early pioneer culture.

ADMISSION FEES AND HOURS:
