Jupiter Real Estate
Jupiter Florida, a gem in Northern Palm Beach County, is always in high demand among potential home buyers. From gorgeous beaches, incredible parks, outdoor activities and world class restaurants along with the famous views of the Jupiter lighthouse, this town has it all.
Here is my list of the top ten must see places in Jupiter. Did your spot make the list?
10) DuBois Park 19075 Dubois Rd Jupiter, FL 33477
DuBois Park is not only one of the most unique swimming beaches in the north county area but also one of the most historical. Amenities include 1,200 feet of beach front, a guarded 100 feet swimming lagoon, picnic areas with grills, playground, restroom facilities and outdoor showers. It is also home to the DuBois Pioneer Home, National Register of Historical Places and an Indian mound, a historical and archeological treasure.
9) Guanabanas – 960 North Highway A1A, Jupiter, FL 33458
Opened by Jupiter surfers as a sandwich shop in 2004, Guanabanas has grown to become an institution in northern Palm Beach County for three reasons: The lush, tropical setting; great cuisine and cocktails (long gone are the sandwich shop days!); and live music from both national acts and the hottest names in South Florida. Guanabanas is a 100 percent open-air waterfront restaurant and bar with woven tiki huts and banyan trees towering over head, and hand-chiseled coquina stone pathways underfoot. The team maintains a laid-back, island atmosphere where everyone is welcome.
8) Blowing Rocks Preserve – 574 S Beach Rd, Hobe Sound, FL 33455
In a region with miles of sandy beaches, Blowing Rocks Preserve is unique: Its craggy limestone shore looks like it belongs in Maine or Hawaii. Owned and managed by the Nature Conservancy, Blowing Rocks Preserve on Jupiter Island is as wild and natural as a beach can get. The conservancy doesn’t even let you bring food or beverages. It gets its name from what the waves and rocks do during rough seas at high tide — water spurts out of holes in the Anastasia limestone, at times spouting 50 feet into the air. These conditions are most common in winter.
7) The Jupiter Sandbar – In the middle of the Loxahatchee River, Jupiter Fl
The popular Loxahatchee River Sandbar in the Jupiter-Tequesta, FL area is a top destination for local boaters. It’s conveniently located near the Jupiter Inlet and the Intercoastal Waterway. The sand bar is long and can accommodate hundreds of people. The Loxahatchee River Sandbar area is known by many names. Some call it “The Jupiter Sandbar.” Others refer to it by the nickname “Coney Island.” Still others call it simply “The Loxahatchee Sandbar.” Visit the Loxahatchee Sandbar on any weekend during low tide. You’ll find dozens of boaters having fun there. Parties tend to be wilder on the east end. Families favor the west end. The sandbar provides views of the nice homes along the Loxahatchee River, bridges over the Intercoastal Waterway and the Jupiter Lighthouse.
6) Square Grouper – 111 Love St., Jupiter, Fl 33458
This is such a classic beach bar that it was used as the locale for the “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” music video featuring country music artist Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett. It’s right on the sandy beach of the Loxahatchee River overlooking the 1860 lighthouse and the inlet. It’s very popular; best time to visit is in the afternoon.
5) Riverbend Park – 9060 Indiantown Road, Jupiter, FL 33458
Quaint bridges, cypress-lined ponds, shady pine forests, magnificent old live oak trees, a historic battlefield, flocks of wild turkeys: They’re all part of the lovely landscape that makes Riverbend Park in Jupiter a delightful place to explore. Opened a few years ago, the Palm Beach County park is particularly fine for a family bicycling outing. It’s also the starting point for the outstanding canoe or kayak trip down the Loxahatchee.
4) Roger Dean Stadium – 4751 Main Street, Jupiter, FL 33458
The Roger Dean Stadium Complex is the only stadium in the country to host four minor league teams: the Jupiter Hammerheads and Palm Beach Cardinals of the Class A-Advanced Baseball Florida State League, and the Gulf Coast Marlins and Gulf Coast Cardinals of the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League. Every spring fans flock to Jupiter for spring training as Roger Dean Stadium hosts the Florida Marlins and St Louis Cardinals major league squads. The stadium is surrounded by the Abacoa community with its great shops and restaurants.
3) Shopping & Dining at Harbourside Place – 200 North US Highway 1, Jupiter, FL 33458
Harbourside Place is the premier downtown destination for shopping, dining, luxury hotel accommodations, entertainment and boating. Nestled along Jupiter’s Intracoastal Waterway, Harbourside Place conveys that classic, coastal vibe. Savor the flavors in one of the mouthwatering restaurants; shop in more than a dozen national and specialty stores; stay in the spectacular Wyndham Grand Jupiter Hotel; and revel in live entertainment at the center’s waterfront amphitheater. It is the prefect place to view the annual holiday boat parade on the Intracoastal Waterway.
2) The Dune Dog – 775 North Alternate A1A, Jupiter, FL 33458
Serving hungry locals since 1994, the Dune Dog has established itself as the go to for tasty comfort food at a moderate price. This open air eatery with a friendly staff is no longer a secret and during the season can have quite a wait during peak times. I promise you the wait will be worth it whether you decide on the tasty wings, famous ribs or a Leroy Brown Junkyard Dog. And if you go, I suggest trying the delicious waffle fries.
1) The Jupiter Lighthouse – North Side of the Jupiter Inlet in Jupiter, FL
Located on the northern bank of the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter Lighthouse Park and the most notable landmark in the city of Jupiter is the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, it is often used as the symbol for Jupiter. Completed in 1860 and made of brick, it was painted red in 1910 due to discoloration caused by humidity. It is 108 feet tall and has a circular stairway with 105 steps from the base of the tower to the lantern room. You can climb to the top daily and see the amazing views of this gorgeous town many call home.
