We like visiting lighthouses all over the country. This is a very nice one with a great tour and history lesson. From the top you can see 2 rivers, the intercoastal and the Atlantic. Interesting history, not only of the lighthouse, but also shipping, Indians, early settlers. The museum is simple but lovely. Historic home included in the tour.

It's a hike, but worth it. The lighthouse has a spiral staircase that can be tough for the out-of-shape. The area is nice to walk around and the trip to the top is worth it for the great view.

Informative and knowledgeable tour guide shared a lot about Indian history in Florida. Not a difficult climb up the lighthouse...great views. Glad we stopped.

Jupiter is a place mostly for retirement.... well, at least that's what it appeared as to me. The Lighthouse is a landmark with more history than I would have thought. You MUST buy a ticket and do the tour; it's not a free attraction. We paid $12 each and the tour lasted about an hour with the highlight being at... More

This is a great and beautiful place to learn and see a little history. We had a nice guided tour of the lighthouse and learned the history of it being built, as well as some history of Florida. There is a little gift shop and a nice museum to tour with admission. Takes about an hour. Really enjoyed it!

Fantastic for the whole family! Very challenging for older people to climb the light House. The views are well worth it! Not to mention the history and the incredible landscape.

This is a lighthouse that is a working lighthouse. You have to be guided to the lighthouse with a volunteer guide. They diligently lock and unlock the gates that lead to the property and you have to stay on a brick path. Only one group can ascend and then descend at a time. There is also a museum and and...

The lighthouse tour is definitely worth a visit. Well informed volunteers provide a good history lesson about the Native Americans who lived at the site, as well as about the settlers. The grounds are beautiful, the lighthouse is well maintained, and the museum is interesting. There are 108 steps to reach the top of the lighthouse, with small landings every... More

Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum has been a source of delight to us for 45 years. Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum is perhaps 15 minutes north of our Marriott Ocean Point Villa. Today, following lunch, my wife has a list of Juno/Jupiter Shops which are "required shopping." We know exactly where Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum is, and spend about... More
