HANG OUT AT THE HAMMOCK
OK, it’s not the Eiffel Tower in Paris. But to us Jupiter residents, that hammock floating in the Inlet is a favorite waterfront icon.
Stroll to the swinging couch on low tide, stretch out and relax to the soothing swoosh of the waves. Ibis, blue herons and pelicans swoop overhead. Maybe a manatee passes by in the clear waters. Or a graceful sea turtle. Wave to the visitors who climbed the 150 steps to the top of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, located on the other side of the turquoise-blue inlet.
Ah, if that hammock could talk, it could tell some stories. Longtime employees of JUPITER OUTDOOR CENTER remember the good ‘ol days when we launched our watercraft from the beach in front off the swaying sailor bed.
Ask us, and we’ll spin a tale for you. It might even be true.

HOUSE ON THE HILL
Built on a hill of shells, the DuBois Pioneer Home was built by New Jersey native Harry DuBois in 1898 for his new bride, Susan Sanders. They met on a blind date at the nearby Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. Back then, the land on the Jupiter Inlet was Florida wilderness. There, Harry and Susan raised four children: John, Henry, Anna, and Niel.
A self-sufficient family, they DuBois clan hunted and fished for food. The children took a boat to school. The family had 600 bee hives, from which they sold honey.
There’s so much more. Take a tour of the DuBois Pioneer Home in DuBois Park top hear all about it.
Docent tours are available on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
