Walked around the park and climbed up the lighthouse. The view was excellent looking across the Island and into the Ocean,

This place has guided history tours. The best part is the view from the lighthouse, so gorgeous and romantic.

Loved the tour, the narrated history of Jupiter and the Native Indians in the area. The view from the lighthouse is unbelievable/priceless! The museum also brings everything together as you can see some of the items spoken about during the tour!

Don't misconstrue the title. The lighthouse was lovely and the grounds are well kept. The title pertains strictly to the ho hum tour that was provided; not by just one staff member but both.

My wife had the pleasure of touring the lighthouse earlier this year at which time she would have rated it a 5. Great tour guides with a passion for history who shared their knowledge. This was quite the opposite experience. No discussion on the way to the lighthouse, sent us to the top where there was no presentation unless you asked questions. Hmmmmm....maybe I don't know what I don't know so enlighten me with wisdom. Unfortunately there was little wisdom to impart since our guide clearly hadn't studied the history. I would have expected the owners to ensure this basic requirement was met for the job. The guide even had note cards to reference but only did once.

I wanted to see the lighthouse at the Jupiter inlet and I was not disappointed Beautiful ground and a lovely gift hop and also a museum on the same ground. Be prepared to walk up an incline to see the lighthouse and best of luck for tackling the lighthouse climb. The view is gorgeous!.
