Florida's Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse

20130331-173611.jpg Built in 1860, the Jupiter Inlet lighthouse sits on a natural 45' hill overlooking the Loxahatchee River inlet in Palm Beach County. The light has never failed to shine since its opening. The site is currently in use by the US Coast Guard, and is adjacent to Jupiter Lighthouse Park. Beautiful grounds and a nice museum, but it unfortunately lacks decent bicycle and pedestrian access. The site would also be more valuable if it offered canoe and kayak rentals with its prime access to the river. Great visit to a true treasure, but too many missed opportunities.
