HISTORY & PEDAL

The DuBois House  is one of your first stops on your Love Street Bicycle Tour.

The house was built on the Jupiter Inlet by the Carlin family in 1898 before Henry Flagler’s railroad brought civilization to Jupiter.

Living in a virtual wilderness, all family members worked. They fished for themselves and commercially, raised their own food, had a cow, chickens, and ducks, sold bananas, vegetables, guava jelly, shot intrusive animals for dinner, and more. The children also went to school in Jupiter via a school boat through grade 10. They raised bees, and had up to 600 hives.

 

Cruise to lighthouse

Lighthouse & Cruise

This twin adventure begins with a climb to the top of the 1860-built Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse on beautiful Jupiter Inlet. Once at the top, you have an amazing 360-degree view of the Florida Everglades, Atlantic Ocean, Jupiter Island and the winding Loxahatchee River that feeds into the Jupiter Inlet.

Don’t forget to take a walk around the 120-acre park. Check out the Lighthouse Keepers Museum, Tyndall House and other historic buildings.

Did you know on a clear night you can see the Jupiter Lighthouse light from about 25 miles out at sea?

Next on your Things To Do in Jupiter adventure is a Jupiter Love Boat Cruise. Expect to see sea turtles, tropical fish, birds, manatees and more as you cruise along the mangrove islands and under Cato’s Bridge, a favorite spot for locals to snorkel.
