  1. Go to the beach

    While it may be a no-brainer, Jupiter has some of the best beaches around, so take advantage of them! Check out the public amenities, like the pavilions or beach volleyball courts, or just head to the water to catch some sun. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

2. Learn about turtles

It’s turtle season! Join the Loggerhead Marine Life Center one evening this summer on a Turtle Walk and learn about the nesting and egg-laying process of sea turtles. At this event, you will walk on the designated areas of Juno beach to search for sea turtles. You will also get an informative presentation from the Loggerhead Marine Life Center staff. Reserve your spot by pre-registering online.

3. Climb the lighthouse

Have you climbed the lighthouse before? It’s a must for anyone who lives in Jupiter or is visiting town. Even if you’ve already checked out those beautiful #jupviews, you can get a different glimpse this time. The Jupiter Lighthouse Museum is hosting Sunset Tours of the Lighthouse. While normally, you have to climb the lighthouse during the day, these scheduled tours are in the evening so you can see the lighthouse with a spectacular sunset background.

4. Eat local food

Are you a #foodie? If so, you HAVE to check out Food Truck Invasion! While this event runs the second Friday of every month, it’s great to check out over the summer if life was too busy during the year or if the kids are looking for something to do. Food Trucks Invasion in Abacoa has just about EVERY type of food, so whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll be able to find at this event! Burgers, Chinese, burritos, salads, chicken and waffles, and so much more!

5. Paint

If you love to paint or if you want to give it a try, head over to Uptown Art in Jupiter sometime this summer! Uptown Art is a studio where you can get hands-on art instruction while eating, drinking, and socializing with good company. You can have a fun-filled evening and then get to take home your very own piece of artwork at the end of the night! The studio has classes during the day and evenings. So if you’re looking for a spot for girls night out, date night, or fun with the kids, check out Uptown Art this summer!

6. Enjoy Live music

If live music is your thing, another great place for you to go this summer is Downtown at the Gardens. Dine at the multiple restaurants, shop at the boutiques and stores, and enjoy live music on Friday nights this summer in Palm Beach Gardens at their Summer Concert Series. It’s a perfect place for #datenight or for the whole family!

7. See local creatures

Are you looking for somewhere to take those adventurous kids of yours? Well, Busch Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect place for the curious kiddies around Jupiter, Florida. Get ready to see bears, eagles, owls, snakes, raccoons, and much more! It’s a great place for the entire family!
