About Jupiter, Florida
Jupiter is located in Palm Beach County and is the northernmost part of the county. It is north of Juno Beach and south of Tequesta. It is east of I95 and west of the Atlantic Ocean. It is oceanfront and has an ocean inlet. It is 21.1 square miles, of which 20 square miles are land and 1.1 are water. In 2012, it was rated number 9 for “Happiest Seaside Towns in America” by Coastal Living Magazine. Its symbol is the lighthouse as that is its most notable feature. The lighthouse was built in 1860 and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1973.
The city was named after the Hobe Indians, who lived near the mouth of the Loxahatchee River. Spanish mapmakers pronounced Hobe as Jobe but mistakenly recorded it as Jove. Later mapmakers assumed that Jove was latin for the Roman god Jupiter and changed the name accordingly. It is a great place to visit and a lovely place to live, offering both oceanfront and intercoastal living as well as golf residences. Residents can choose from homes, townhomes, villas and condominiums, both in gated and ungated communities.
The city is home to Roger Dean Stadium, Florida Atlantic University’s MacArthur Campus, Palm Beach International Raceway, William P Gwinn Airport, Busch Wildlife Sanctuary and Scripps Research Institute. In the center of the city lies Abacoa, a planned community offering 11 different neighborhoods and a Town Center with restaurants and shops.
