The secret is out. What used to be a hidden gem – now is one of the most highly sought after areas in Palm Beach County. Situated in the northernmost part of the county – Jupiter is not just known for its legendary lighthouse. There is more than one reason it was named one of the top ten ‘Happiest Seaside Towns’ by Coastal Living. I’ve put together my top ten reasons for what makes it the best choice for your move to South Florida.
Miles and miles of the most beautiful walkable beaches. One of the first things you’ll notice arriving at Jupiter Beach are the tropical sea grape hedges and endless free parking. If you have spent some time in Palm Beach, you know that hanging at the beach all day will cost you a pretty penny.
The majority of Jupiter’s beaches are dog friendly – so bring your furry friends! Depending on your activity for the day, there are many different locations/beaches to choose from. Launch your paddleboard off the many intra-coastal beaches, set up by the pier for social media-worthy content, or take your snorkel gear to Coral Cove and see what marine life you can spot.
- Boater’s Dream
You could not possible get a more water-driven community. Enjoy cruising the beautiful intra-coastal waterways and pulling up to seaside restaurants. Hang out with your friends by the sandbars or have easy access to skip to the Bahamas or deep-sea fish. Jupiter is plentiful with waterfront communities, marinas, and boat clubs (like Jupiter Pointe Marina).
- Luxurious, yet laid back
Enjoy all your favorite amenities with an easygoing lifestyle. There is something for every mood. Jupiters’ vibe is one you have to experience to understand.
- Travel Ease
Whether you’re a snowbird or frequent jet-setter, traveling is made convenient with Palm Beach International Airport only 20 miles away. Want to take a day trip to Miami without dealing with traffic? No problem – hop on the Brightline, grab a drink onboard, and cruise down uninterrupted.
- Outdoor Activities
Hit the trails bike or foot at Palm Beach County famous parks. Riverbend is 665 acres with amenities like bike/hike trails, canoeing/kayaking, freshwater fishing, and equestrian trails. While at the park, it is likely you get to see wildlife like deer and turtles! Check out Jonathan Dickenson, the largest State Park in Southeast Florida. Set on the Loxahatchee River, J.D. offers hike/bike trails, mountain biking, camping, 150 species of birds, canoeing./kayaking, etc. Come connect with nature and experience the true Florida!
Our year-round warm climate is what you could say we are infamous for. Tired of shoveling snow and scraping ice off your windshield? As a Minnesota native – I understand. South Florida’s average winter temp is 61 degrees. I promise you, you will never see a 0 for the temperature here!
- Prestigious Golf
In 2013, GolfDigest named Jupiter as “Golf’s hotspot.” Comes at no surprise being home to the world’s most renowned clubs, courses, ideal year-round weather, and the host of the Honda Classic on the PGA Tour. No matter if you are a casual amateur or professional golfer, Jupiter provides perfect opportunities.
Florida’s favorable no state income tax has been a long time appeal for many out-of-state transplants on the fence of making a move. Many north-easterners have already jumped ship to seek shelter from increasing tax laws by making Florida their homestead state.
Seeking a lively destination that also has nature? Jupiter is bountiful in protected natural areas to maintain wildlife, mitigate future traffic problems, and for public use and enjoyment.
Jupiter offers lots of dining choices with an array of venues. Feel like dressing up? Head to 1000 North. Coming off the boat? Dock up at Square Grouper. Want a local staple? Check out Guanabanas for its lush tropical environment, great waterfront views, live music, and the best organic margarita. And of course, for the seafood lovers, the prime spots are: Captain Charlie’s Reef Grill, U-tiki, and Schooners.
