In honor of World Turtle Day, yes it’s a thing, let’s learn more about the Palm Beach’s favorite reptile: the Loggerhead Turtle.

Loggerhead Turtle

Loggerhead turtles are named for their large heads that support powerful jaw muscles, allowing them to crush hard-shelled prey like clams and sea urchins. They are less likely to be hunted for their meat or shell compared to other sea turtles. The accidental capture of marine animals in fishing gear, is a serious problem for loggerhead turtles, which are endangered, because they frequently come in contact with fisheries.

The Square Grouper Tiki Bar is a Jupiter staple. The Tiki bar sits on a strip of land jutting into the inlet that separates North Jupiter. Across the water is the Jupiter lighthouse, and out past the jetty is the open ocean. The bar itself is nothing more than a thatched-roof, open-air bar made from wood that likely washed ashore at some point. It's painted in multiple Caribbean themes. Plastic tables and chairs sit around the main bar area, which has a floor of white sand.

Square Grouper is a great place to visit during happy hour or as a great place to hand out for before or after dinner drinks. The Bar is right on the water and directly across from the Jupiter Lighthouse so you can pull up a few chairs and sit around a table in the sand while

There are a lot of great places to get coffee in West Palm Beach, here are 5 of the best.

Located in the Northwood neighborhood, Harold’s Coffee Lounge offers a judgment-free zone. It’s the kind of place where it would feel completely natural to find yourself in a deep discussion about the meaning of life with strangers.
