Palm Beach County is an excellent area to live especially if you appreciate and love the outdoors. Most everyone is familiar with the miles and miles of beaches, waterways, and palm trees; however, some people are unaware that our area also has some beautiful state parks. Here are two favorite local state parks.

John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm Beach features snarls of mangrove marshlands and trails that meander through canopies of trees. There are extensive boardwalks and footpaths that traverse the lagoon. Additionally, there are almost two miles of unspoiled beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. MacArthur State Park is snuggled on a barrier island offering swimming, fishing, educational programs, dedicated events, kayak rentals, and…

Ever wonder how many shades of color can be seen in the waterways, skies, or preserves of Jupiter and Tequesta? I have no idea either, but you can attempt to keep a count of the various shades with a libation in hand at one of the local waterfront eateries. Be intentional and mindful of the colors you perceive in nature.

With water in varying blue shades of the Caribbean Sea, shell-filled beaches, a chill relaxed vibe from the 6.2 miles of Atlantic coastline there are more shades than can be mentioned. The blue color of ocean water is an inherent property caused by the selective absorption and scattering of white light. When sunlight shines on the sea, all the colors of the rainbow permeate the water.

In a tropical paradise such as here, nothing…

The Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation has been building reefs off the Jupiter coastline for several years. The Foundation was created to honor the memory of Andrew Harris who was struck by a boat while snorkeling in the Jupiter Inlet on June 8, 2014. The foundation’s work will help assure the long-term health and vibrancy of the local marine environment where Andrew loved to dive and fish.

The Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation began a significant education initiative in 2018. The goal was to donate a 5-book set of the “Professor Clark the Science Shark” series to every third-grade classroom in Florida, 55,000 books in all!  As you can imagine that goal has been met and enthusiastically received!!

Children love the story of the little boy (Andrew) who…

The Blue Heron Bridge crosses over to beautiful Singer Island. This offers some of the best diving not just in Florida, but America and possibly the world. This is a scuba diver’s dream spot. It is located on Singer Island so there are no worries about booking a boat or long travel times because it’s a shallow dive spot.

The offering argument for the Blue Heron Bridge being a remarkable dive spot is the astonishing diversity. Divers could search up and down the east coast and not find as genuinely a populated place as this.  Manta rays, octopus, frogfish, stargazers, seahorses and so much more. All just a stone’s throw from shore.  Making shore diving an option for anyone.

Check out the shallow depth. It’s about 12 feet on average and gets down…

The State of Florida only has a few remaining Dog Friendly Beaches in the entire state and the Town of Jupiter is proud to have one of them.  The town adopted the policy to allow dogs to roam on the beach in 1989. Since then, the stretch of sand where dogs are permitted has grown to 2.5 miles long.

The Dog Friendly Beach area stretches from Carlin Park at Beach Marker #57 to Marcinski Road at Beach Marker #25. In this designated area, dogs are allowed to roam freely while being supervised by their owners.

In order to keep Jupiter a dog friendly area, the town has a set of rules, they wish everyone would follow when bringing your dog to the beach.

Dog-Friendly Beach Area Rules:

  • Only behaved, obedient, well-socialized dogs should be brought…

On Saturday mornings throughout the summer, the Loggerhead Marinelife Center hosts a Self-Guided Beach Clean Up for locals and visitors to help keep our beautiful beaches clean for the sea turtles and other marine life.

Now more than ever, the sea turtle research and rehabilitation center need your help. Beginning in March through the end of October is Sea Turtle Nesting Season, where thousands of sea turtles lay their nests on the beach in our area.

During this time, the center monitors the beaches daily for new sea turtle nests.

The center sets up for the Self-Guided Beach Clean Up…
