This amazing weather we’ve been experiencing has us excited to discover the beauty that is all around us. Jupiter is located in the northernmost area of Palm Beach County. With easy access to the intracoastal waterway, natural lands and lush greenery – there are plenty of places to explore. There are plenty of options from the more adventurous thrill seekers to those who just want to take it slow . The perfect staycation is just a weekend away. We suggest packing a light bite, lacing up your sneakers (or flip flops) and getting out there!
We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite destinations in Jupiter:
JONATHAN DICKINSON STATE PARK:
With over 11,500 acres there is plenty to discover here. This one park has plenty of environments from coastal sandhills, lakes, scrub forests and The Loxahatchee River. You can enjoy canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Also included, paved and off-road biking and hiking trails. Camping is also an option – whether you pitch your own tent or are looking to rent a cabin. There are plenty of family friendly events and programs that can be enjoyed as well.

This beautiful and historic park brings a feeling of old Florida charm. More than just the standard hiking, biking and canoeing – this park features ancient Indian middens through the Seminole war battles. You get a glimpse into how the first Florida settlers lived.

BLOWING ROCKS PRESERVE:
This stretch of barrier island rocks along Martin County are a true treasure. The preserve was named for its rocky Anastatia limestone shoreline, which is the largest on the Atlantic coast. This place is home to a diverse eco-system filled with endangered plants and animals – including Loggerhead, Leatherback and Green turtles. You can enjoy hiking along the lush hammocks, bird watching, fishing as well as snorkeling and diving.
