Jupiter, Florida, is renowned for its stunning beaches and waterfront living. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that it’s also bursting with fantastic family-friendly attractions. Whether you live in Jupiter or are just visiting, this guide will help you plan a fun-filled day for the whole family.
Morning: Exploring the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum
Start your day at the iconic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum. The lighthouse stands at a stunning 108 feet tall, and for those willing to climb the 105 steps to the top, they’ll be rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views of the Jupiter Inlet. The museum offers interactive exhibits that delve into the history of the area, and there’s a nature trail that leads through the 120-acre Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area. Be sure to pack your camera!
Midday: Outdoor Adventure at Riverbend Park
When you’ve soaked up all the history at the lighthouse, head to Riverbend Park for some outdoor adventure. Covering over 680 acres, Riverbend is a great place to reconnect with nature. You can rent a bicycle or kayak, or simply explore the miles of walking trails. Don’t forget to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy by the river.
Afternoon: Visit to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary
Next, head over to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, a refuge for wildlife and a great educational experience for kids. Here, you’ll see Florida panthers, black bears, birds of prey, and various species of reptiles. The Sanctuary is dedicated to the protection and conservation of Florida’s wildlife and offers free admission, though donations are appreciated.
Late Afternoon: Interactive Learning at the Loxahatchee River Center
The Loxahatchee River Center is a must-visit for young, curious minds. With interactive exhibits on local wildlife, ecosystems, and conservation efforts, it’s a fantastic place to instill a love and respect for nature in children. Check their event calendar as they often host fun and educational activities for families.
Evening: Relaxing at Carlin Park
End your day with some relaxation at Carlin Park. With 3,000 feet of guarded beach, playgrounds, picnic areas, and a performance amphitheater, it’s the perfect place to unwind. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a live music performance or a play at the outdoor theater. As the day draws to a close, enjoy a stunning Jupiter sunset – the perfect end to a fun-filled family day!
This is just a sample of what Jupiter has to offer for families.
