Our tour guide was very eager to share information with us. It is 140 steps to the top of the lighthouse - 35 outside, 105 inside. Great view from the top. Landings inside after steps 25, 50, and 75. All the areas of the park outside the lighthouse are handicap accessible, but not the lighthouse itself.

Walking the many stairs to the top will be worth it. When up there take your time to enjoy it. Also during the hot summer months the top is the coolest place to be.

If you are visiting Jupiter or the surrounding area then a trip to tour the Jupiter Lighthouse is well worth it. These are guided tours and the guides are friendly and well informed. The lighthouse has a small museum dealing with Coast Guard history and the Florida Indian Wars and early settlers. Lots of restaurants close to the Lighthouse -... More

If your local you have to tour the lighthouse and check it out. If your visiting Jupiter or the surrounding area you should definitely visit the lighthouse. Great views on a great plot of land. Federally owned property keeps the land in prestige condition. Very informative tour and great views of the inlet.

Great breeze and huge banyan trees. The climb up.loghthouse house is a serious workout. I took my time and survived it. View up top worth... More

Beautiful lighthouse. Very well kept. Had to wait a little bit for tour because of storms but it was all good. Lots of history. Lots of walking so wear good shoes and if the heat of day bring some water.

This is a wonderful place to visit & learn a little bit of the history of Jupiter. The climb to the top of the lighthouse is not easy but the view from the top is awesome.

History is always included on our vacations... This is a beautiful place to learn about history and enjoy the breezes off the ocean. I guess you could call it workout going to the top of the lighthouse but it is well worth it.

We went to the lighthouse and the view pulling up, before we got out of the vehicle, was a great preview of what was to come. I have a bad back so honestly I couldn't do the steps up to the top easily, but that didn't ruin my time. There is so much to do on the grounds, like a... More
