Allow 15 – 30 minutes for Draw Bridges Florida Light Houses and US Light Houses from Maine to Florida continue to be an on-going attraction as we travel the US. We highly recommend a visit to the Jupiter Light House and Museum.

The lighthouse is only 105 steps with a 34 stair entrance. They were decorated for Christmas which was nice. Staff is friendly. Doesn’t quite have the set up like St. Augustine, making me believe that the Jupiter property is a little over-priced.
