Things To Do in Jupiter
Upcoming Adventure coming soon at Love Street Outdoor Center
Accessible only by boat, St. Lucie Inlet Preserve State Park is a dream come true for those seeking out the natural Florida.
LOVE STREET OUTDOOR CENTER guides will take you on an hourlong boat ride from Jupiter Inlet waterways on the pristine Intracoastal Waterway to the Preserve on the northern tip of Jupiter Island, where the St. Lucie River enters the Atlantic Ocean.
After docking at the Preserve, you’ll walk a tree-lined, shady boardwalk through lush mangrove forests and hammocks of live oaks, cabbage palms, paradise trees and wild limes to a neatly preserved Atlantic Ocean beach, a first stop on your things to do in Jupiter excursion.
You’ll quickly see the St. Lucie Inlet Preserve is one of the few undeveloped areas on Florida’s east coast. It’s a popular spot with nature students who visit to learn about native flora and fauna of Florida barrier islands.
Along the 3/4-mile boardwalk, you’ll likely see lots of wildlife. There’s long-legged ibises, colorful butterflies, spindly spiders, wide-winged ospreys hunting for fish and raccoons roustabouting through thick mangroves during your things to do in Jupiter trip.
