Jupiter Florida is a relaxed coastal town in northern Palm Beach County with 50,000 annual residents. In 2012, Jupiter made the top 10 list of America’s Happiest Seaside Towns by Coastal Living Magazine. Jupiter is known for the brick red Jupiter Lighthouse located on Jupiter Inlet with easy access to the Gulf Stream and the Bahamas. The reefs off the inlet attract boaters, sports fishermen and divers alike. The many beaches and beach area parks offer free public parking and attract local and far away beach-goers, surfers, kite surfers and paddle boarders. The Jupiter Island beaches – Blowing Rocks and Coral Cove Park – just north of Jupiter Inlet have rocky limestone formations in the surf while the southern side of the inlet is sandy. There are lifeguards on all public beaches. Certain sections of Jupiter Beach allow dogs. (See beaches.) Roger Dean Stadium is home of the Jupiter Hammerheads baseball team. During spring training fans from all over the country arrive to see the Saint Louis Cardinals. Jupiter has many private and public tennis clubs that participate in the various Palm Beach singles, doubles and mixed tennis leagues. The many private championship golf courses, executive golf courses and the public Abacoa Golf Club are home to recreational and PGA Tour pro-golfers. Many families locate to Jupiter because of the many ‘A’ rated local Palm Beach County schools and the highly regarded Jupiter Tequesta Athletic Association (JTAA) with dozens of youth sports including baseball, basketball, cheer leading, football, lacrosse, roller hockey, soccer, softball and volleyball.
I’ve lived in the Jupiter area for 10 years and have really seen it change. It was a quiet town few people had heard of unless they had family or friends in one of the classic local golf communities like Jonathan’s Landing or Admiral’s Cove. If you Googled Jupiter and Palm Beach in 2003 – Jupiter would appear as a distant cousin. Now both Jupiter and nearby Palm Beach Gardens are very popular destinations actually more popular but less known than Palm Beach. The social scene is quite different between Palm Beach and Jupiter. There’s much more publicity and glitz in Palm Beach. For outsiders, the Jupiter lifestyles may not be apparent as many functions are in one of the many gated golf course communities or private residences. Jupiter, Tequesta and Jupiter Island are laid back with an affluent flair – this is more and more sought after in our modern society. For the younger generations, there’s always Ft Lauderdale and Miami – perfect weekend getaways for those who live ‘up here’.
