On Wednesdays through September 30, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum offers one of the most enlightening tours in Palm Beach County. It’s then that visitors get a rare insider’s glimpse into the working lighthouse and can climb to the top of it for a spectacular panoramic view of the sunset. When night falls, they’ll have the best seat possible to watch the lighthouse’s beacon turn on and illuminate the night sky. The 108-feet-tall lighthouse was constructed in 1860 on a small mound on the north side of the Jupiter Inlet. The lighthouse complex also includes a museum located in a restored World War II naval housing quarters. The museum contains hundreds of artifacts that tell the story of surrounding area dating back as far as 5,000 years. For more information about lighthouse’s sunset tour, call 561-747-8380, ext. 101. The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is located at 500 Captain Armour’s Way, Jupiter, FL.
