South Florida, and particularly Palm Beach County, is known for its Scuba diving. Here are a few of our favorite spots.

Juno Ledge

65-95 feet; drop-off plummets up to 20 feet as you drift with turtles, sharks, tropicals and schooling fish including Atlantic spadefish, grouper and snapper.

King Neptune

55-60 feet; this nine-foot statue of King Neptune and his turtles stands just south of a dramatic ledge with a big overhang large enough for several divers to through.

Loggerhead Reef

55-70 feet; boulders broken off the main reef identify this dive site, with the bulk of the rubble on the west side. Compared to Bahamas diving because of the topography, this area begs to be explored.

Reformation Reef

55-80 feet; cathedral-like

Bowlero is the name of the relatively new and improved Jupiter Lanes. As many residents of Palm Beach County know, Jupiter Lanes wasa old-fashioned, sleepy bowling alley. But it has changed with the times, and in its place today sits Bowlero, a modern, luxury bowling alley with a bar, music and everything else you need to have fun ranging from beer pong tables to delicious food.

Bowlero brings a nightclub feel to bowling. The alley also has a great arcade. The rise of Bowlero coincides with the general upscaling of similar businesses like movie theaters. Bowlero has been described as “cry from the smoke-stained, color-drained mom-and-pop alleys of the popular imagination.” It’s yet another entertaining addition to the beautiful town of Jupiter.
