Events At The Lighthouse This May

Posted by Ali Kane on Friday, May 13th, 2022 at 11:55am.

The iconic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is a popular attraction for both locals and visitors in the area. The bright red lighthouse tower stands on top of the mound overlooking the Jupiter Inlet and all who sail by. 

The lighthouse has been a Jupiter staple since May of 1860 when the tower was completed. The light that shines from the tower can be seen for 24 nautical miles at sea. Today, the lighthouse is open for tours and allows visitors to climb the 105 steps to the take and enjoy the view. The lighthouse also hosts several events each month for a chance for locals to experience and hang out at the lighthouse with your friends and neighbors.
