Jupiter, Florida has a lot of fun and exciting activities to appreciate year round. Whether you’re interested in historic lighthouses, sports games, or wildlife exhibits, Jupiter has something for everyone to enjoy. Here are a few of our favorite activities in the Jupiter area:
For those wanting to get a glimpse into native wildlife, look no further than the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary. Free to the public, the tropical nature center and wildlife hospital boasts a number of trails where you can see different native species. Learn about Florida panthers, otters, crocodiles, and many other wildlife animals from exhibits and wildlife shows. The Wildlife Sanctuary is perfect for those with children interested in wildlife and nature.
If you’ve just moved to a Jupiter community and are looking for a great city space, we love DuBois Park. Found on the Jupiter Inlet, the DuBois Park is a favorite destination for Jupiter locals. The park boasts a pristine beach along the lagoon waterfront, which means it’s perfect for a day on the water! Clear and shallow waters provide great conditions for snorkeling or just observing sea creatures from above. Bring the kids for a family day at the beach; there are a number of amenities including a playground, public restrooms, and grills at the park.

Luckily for baseball fans, Jupiter has its own baseball stadium called Roger Dean Stadium. Roger Dean Stadium plays home to not one or two, but four minor league baseball teams: the Jupiter Hammerheads, the Palm Beach Cardinals, the Gulf Coast Marlins, and the Gulf Coast Cardinals. As the only stadium in the nation to host 4 different minor league teams, there is always a game to catch during baseball season. Visit the Roger Dean website to see all of the team schedules and purchase tickets.
Standing on the north side of the Jupiter Inlet, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse has provided navigational aid for more than 150 years. These days, the Loxahatchee River Historical Society preserves and provides the upkeep for the lighthouse. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse for fantastic views, explore outdoor exhibits like the Lighthouse Keeper’s Workshop, or visit the museum for historical tours including Civil War stories about the lighthouse.
