Sitting as the northernmost town in Palm Beach County, residents experience beautiful beaches, luxury amenities, and an easy going lifestyle year-round.
Through a series of misunderstandings and misinterpretations, the area formerly known as “Jobe”—a Spanish spelling of “Hobe”—came to be called Jupiter, after the foremost Roman god of the same name. Jupiter was sparsely populated at the turn of the 20th century, claiming less than 150 residents and quirks such as barefoot postal workers carrying mail along the beach and children taking boats to school. However, the area’s logging and farming economy long since transitioned to more recreational exploits, where yachters and sport fishing enthusiasts alike mingle on or near the town’s calm harbors and inlets. The Jupiter of today sits as the northernmost in Palm Beach County and Miami’s greater metropolitan area. Discounting the Treasure Coast, in some ways, this geographical distinction makes Jupiter the beginning of South Florida—and the easygoing lifestyle that goes along with it.
