Martin County is home to Jonathan Dickinson State Park. The Florida State Park sits between Palm Beach County’s Tequesta and Martin County’s Hobe Sound, and just a few miles north of Jupiter. The park is named after a Quaker merchant named Jonathan Dickinson that wreaked his boat off the coast in 1696.
