What a wonderful spot to review history and then capture panoramic pictures of beautiful boats on the bluest water ever. The landscape and trees were fantastic and unique. Perfect for a photographer.

This is one of the best lighthouses I've seen. You can climb up for a 360' view of Jupiter inlet. Their is a comprehensive history of the lighthouse and the early Florida residents who operated it. The docents who do tours obviously love their landmark..
