Jupiter

The Town of Jupiter and the Village of Tequesta are nestled between Palm Beach Gardens and Stuart. Both areas cater to the outdoor style, as they wrap around the Loxahatchee River and Intracoastal Waterway, which provide incomparable views to residents. For this reason, water sports and boating are abundant. Jupiter and Tequesta also offer their share of championship golf courses and pristine beaches frequented often under consistently sunny skies.

If you’re from the Jupiter area, you probably have many childhood memories splashing around the shallow lagoon of DuBois Park. Some of the best family time of my childhood was spent searching for crabs, attempting to catch small fish with a toy net in the mangroves, and eating grilled hotdogs on the warm sand.

While the unique estuary is a joy to explore, there is also a rich history behind DuBois Park. At the top of the “Indian mound”, a large pile of mollusk shells built by indigenous Native Americans, in the center of the park is a house made of Florida pine that was once home to early Florida pioneers, Harry and Susan DuBois. Harry bought 18 acres south of the Jupiter Inlet that he had long admired for its ridge of Indian shell mound, and he needed

Jupiter Medical Center delivers more than 1,500 babies each year, and can now take care of newborns delivered as early as 32 weeks.

World-class, compassionate care, support services before, during and after delivery, and luxurious accommodations are just some of the reasons Jupiter Medical Center has been voted the “Best Place to Have a Baby” by The Palm Beach Post readers.

If you’re from Florida, you already know, but if you’re new to the area, a large part of experiencing everything Florida has to offer is by eating what the natives eat- FISH! Saving the best for last, here are the top 10 fish to eat in Florida!


10. Kingfish

Some may wonder why kingfish even made this list, but the truth is that South Florida consumes a ridiculous amount of it. Also known as king mackeral, kingfish is not the best fish to eat as a main course since it tastes quite “gamey” because of its high oil content. However, commercial kingfishing is a booming industry in South Florida for a big reason- smoked fish dip. Just about every restaurant in South Florida carries this delectable

Hobe Sound is a charming little community just north of the Palm Beach County line within Martin County. The quaint little town is abundant with beautiful beaches, easy to drive roads and a chilled out friendly vibe. Plan an easy day of fun, relaxed things to do in Hobe Sound within proximity to each other.

Harry and the Natives Restaurant has been around since 1941. It’s an eclectic place which advertises to be “Hobe Sound’s only waterfront restaurant…when it rains”!  It’s so old that it has the 9th alcohol license in the district, and places 1 to 8 are no longer up and running. It’s a definite beloved with the locals.  Funky, fun and fan favorite.  

The Blowing Rocks are a “point of interest” in Hobe Sound. The preserve was named for its rocky

Whether you're a kite fishing team on a pampered SeaVee or playing bait-and-switch from a custom sportfish, here is the 2019-2020 line-up of sailfish tournaments in South Florida.
