What can you say about a trip back in time. The history of this site goes back 5000 years. The guides are knowledgeable and the view from the top of the light is unparalleled. The Lighthouse lens is a national treasure. Don't miss this experience.

The Jupiter light is a great place to visit and the view from the top of the light house is outstanding. The facility is also very interesting in that it was previously a bachelor officers barracks for Navy personnel during WWII.
