Jupiter—Florida’s happiness hot spot

Laid-back Jupiter is the perfect choice for freewheeling seaside adventures, and Jupiter vacation rentals provide the perfect base for exploration and relaxation. Simple beachfront condos and grand estate homes alike are equipped for flexibility and freedom of choice, so you can plan each precious day of your vacation around your itinerary. This popular resort on Florida’s sun-kissed Atlantic coast is blessed with endless white-sand beaches, beautiful palm-fringed parks, well-equipped playgrounds, stimulating hiking trails, and world-class sporting facilities. No wonder it’s been named one of the Top 10 Happiest Seaside Towns in the USA.

Things to do

Jupiter’s most iconic landmark

Jupiter’s iconic red lighthouse has been a beacon on the north bank of the Jupiter Inlet since 1860, and in 1973, its significance was recognized with a prestigious listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The Loxahatchee River Historical Society offers guided tours of the tower and also operates a small museum. Indoor displays illustrate the site’s maritime and Native American heritage and chronicle its pivotal role in World War II, while outdoor exhibits include a traditional pioneer homestead and a historic oil house. The protected Outstanding Natural Area surrounding the lighthouse is within easy walking distance of downtown Jupiter vacation rentals.


A cultural side to Jupiter

It’s tempting just to kick back on the beach, but if you take time out to discover Jupiter’s cultural side, you’ll be richly rewarded. This friendly community prides itself on its lively entertainment scene and eye-catching landmarks. Stroll around the neighborhood of Abacoa to admire prime examples of Floridian New Urbanism architecture and enjoy the sociable ambience of its many bars and restaurants. Free concerts, food festivals, and kids’ fun days are all part of the city’s summer program. The renowned Maltz Jupiter Theater presents exciting productions of plays and musicals in a storied building that was founded by famed local resident Burt Reynolds.


Jupiter—a desirable prospect whatever the season

Jupiter’s tropical savannah climate generates year-round sunshine and the kind of temperatures that make beach vacations a desirable prospect whatever the season. Florida’s typical hot, wet summers and mild, dry winters provide ideal growing conditions for tropical plants and foliage. From November through April, the state’s Atlantic coast is a magnet for winter sun-seekers, bringing high demand for Jupiter vacation rentals on the beach. Summer downfalls can be thundery but are usually short-lived, and the streets dry quickly in the intense heat that inevitably follows.

Natural features

Caring for Jupiter’s wildlife

Busch Wildlife Sanctuary brings the rich wildlife of Florida to the doorstep of downtown Jupiter vacation rentals. The sanctuary combines a refuge for abandoned or injured wildlife with a network of nature trails through pinewoods, oak hammocks, and wetlands. These protected habitats are home to many native animals, including panthers, crocodiles, deer, and black bears. Visitors can also acquaint themselves with indigenous bird species such as bald eagles, falcons, and vultures. A program of special events, including many aimed towards youngsters, showcases the sanctuary’s wider mission to educate and inform the general public about Florida’s rich biodiversity.
