Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse 160th Anniversary

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse first cast its beam out to sea on July 10, 1860 and changed our area forever!


We’re celebrating an exciting milestone in history on July 10, 2020 – the official 160th Lighthouse Anniversary! Join us and be one of 160 visitors to receive FREE admission sponsored by Florida Power & Light Company. You must register online beginning on July 1, 2020. Tickets are required for entry, on a first-reserved basis in hourly time slots and admission will be limited to a total of 160 visitors.

During the July 10th celebration day you can stroll the historic grounds, climb the Lighthouse, view the Modica Family and the Joe Namath Foundation supported Keeper’s Workshop exhibit and peruse the Lighthouse gift shop offering special discounts. Children will be given a special Lighthouse Keepers pin, while quantities last. The Museum will be closed due to restricted spaces and lighthouse climbs are weather permitting. Children must be at least 48” tall to climb the Lighthouse. Masks and social distancing are required.

After your visit, stop by Tommy Bahama Restaurant Harbourside – check out their amazing To Go Menu!
