As this seems to be the only 'historic' place in Jupiter, it's a must visit. The view from the top is definitely worth it. Before you climb the lighthouse, a docent leads you through the grounds and tells you the local history. Nice gift shop and good view of the Jupiter Inlet.

Grounds and facilities are very nice. A lot of historical information presented. Be prepared to climb curves metal stairs. Definitely worth visiting the lighthouse

We love outdoors and sightseeing. Jupiter lighthouse is a combination of both. There is a fee to walk into the former Coast Guard and Navy base, but worth it for those who want to see a spectacular view and learn a little history about the land and its people. Climbing up (& down) is not for those with medical conditions...orthopedic,... More

My bride and I went here but did not pay to visit the lighthouse and museum. We wanted pictures only. We got those and moved on.

Went on the sunset tour last Wednesday and it was beautiful. From the walk to the lighthouse to the view up top was amazing. Would recommend anyone to check out the lighthouse at sunset. Make sure to check when it's available! Definitely worth it!

Enjoyed with our 4 children ages 7-13. Even with the heat of July our family enjoyed the tour of the grounds & the lighthouse. This mommy is afraid of heights, but pushed though to make it to the top for gorgeous views of the jupiter inter coastal area. The gift shop has some fun items for adults & kids. Loved... More
