The color of the lighthouse is deep in my memory. The sight of it, is majestic and haunting .Its an amazing view once you get to the top! Climb the steps, see a jaw dropping tree, wander through an old world house and hear about the history. We heard great lighthouse stories, had some delicious fudge and spent time browsing... More

The Jupiter lighthouse is a must see! Our tour was led by a very informative guide who shared not just about the lighthouse but Florida's history. The location of the lighthouse is beautiful, surround by lush trees and gorgeous views of the intercostal. If you love nature and don't mind getting some exercise, then this is definitely for you.

Very informative and interesting. Not too expensive either. Going up the lighthouse itself is very tiring, also not recommended for people who are scared of heights or claustrophobic. Still a good trip. Definitely worth a visit!

A long time resident of Jupiter. This is a must see venue. The view from the top of the inlet to the intercoastal waterway on a clear and beautiful summer day is something to remember.

You must be able to climb the 100 or so steps to reach the top of a spiral staircase to see a great 360 degree view of the inlet and area. The guides are well versed in the local history of the area and the lighthouse itself.

I took my eight-year-old son today to the lighthouse. We are residents of Jupiter and always see the lighthouse driving around town. It is a rite of passage for a local kid to climb the 105 steps inside the lighthouse to experience the beauty of the lighthouse firsthand. Tales of local Indians, explorers, pirates, and it's involvement in World War... More

This was a fun and informative outing. The sights from the top are just beautiful! There are a lot of stairs though if you wish to go to the top.

The view from the lighthouse is quite interesting. Visiting is only allowed by a guided tour. No opportunities to walk around the lighthouse area. It was not allowed to take my photo bag with me. "Because the lighthouse area is military area". Some people could be bit friendlier. Restaurant facilities rather poor. Provided coffee almost cold. Museum of several rooms... More
