Tucked into the northernmost corner of Palm Beach County is the beautiful waterfront Town of Jupiter.  Jupiter is blessed with an abundance of water and natural beauty.  Its small town charm is enhanced by the historic Jupiter Lighthouse, which has stood protectively overlooking the Jupiter Inlet for more than 150 years.  To the east lies miles of sandy white Atlantic Ocean beaches with turquoise blue waters.  To the west is “the wild and scenic Loxahatchee River” thought to be one of the last remaining wild river ways in the nation.
