This is a very old lighthouse still in operation. It cost $9 per adult, which I thought was a bit high, nonetheless we took the tour. Same cost for seniors, children were less. The museum was very interesting. It is worth sitting through the 10 minute movie to learn the background of the area. Many artifacts were found right along... More

Lovely intercostal location. If you take the informative tour you'll be given the option of climbing the 100 plus circular stairway steps or remaining at ground level. However, once you enter grounds you need to stay with one of the guides. On the steps near the top you may be treated to a rainbow like prism reflecting on steps and... More

If you like to see lighthouses, this one is very nice. It is in a very nice park and there is lots of parking.

We stopped by the park for a quick picnic and then we were headed for the tour. I had been wanting to take this tour for years. It was a beautiful day calm waters, watched the boats go by and draw bridge open. I wanted to get a picture of the lighthouse from the park for my review. The water... More

Florida being devoid of hills means that any opportunity to view the beach from a height is sure to draw more than a few gasps- the beauty of the vistas are hard to express in words. The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is certainly just such an experience. Its always a little ironic that when you live in a place you somehow... More

Fantastic views from the top. Well worth climbing the 105 steps for. Shop is well stocked and the staff are very friendly. Will call again.

A wealth of knowledge and a great experience climbing to the top of the lighthouse. The kids enjoyed going to the top and seeing the surrounding area.

Most of my out-of-town guests want to visit this eye-catching sight so I've been to this lighthouse several times, and with every visit, I learn something new. The view is spectacular, museum and cracker house is always interesting, and the staff is very friendly and informative. They don't "promote" this, but ask the staff about their resident ghost!

I have lived in Jupiter for 10+ years and never did the Lighthouse tour, until we had company come and want to go. I was amazed at how much I learned about the history of the area. The view from the lighthouse was amazing. It was definitely worth the time.
