The lighthouse and museum are must-sees while visiting Jupiter. The views are spectacular, and the history is so interesting. Don't forget your camera, as you can see the Atlantic Ocean and the Loxahatchee River with lots of boat action.

The tour is informative and the 360º views from the top are worth the hike up. There is a nice local museum attached to the gift shop.

A wonderful tour guide made this place shine! We learned a lot about the Seminoles and lighthouses in general. It is not possible to enter the grounds without a tour guide.
