Upscale homes in one of Florida’s most liveable beachfront towns
Ranked the ninth-best Southern beach town to live in by Stacker Newsletter, Jupiter has an abundance of attractions, beautiful homes, and green spaces to offer potential homeowners. Located along the northernmost edge of Palm Beach County, the community’s pristine beaches, variety of amenities, and diverse property market cater to individuals and families from all walks of life.
Originally home to the Hobe Native American tribe, the region was later discovered first by Spanish and subsequently other European settlers. Named after the Roman god, Jupiter, the settlement quickly developed into a bustling outpost at the mouth of the Loxahatchee River.
Today, Jupiter’s sought-after luxury property market and incredible natural scenery have drawn in many renowned public figures including Celine Dion and Burt Reynolds. Offering everything from upscale condos and single-family homes to waterfront mansions, homebuyers are spoiled for choice when it comes to finding their dream Florida home.
As one of the best places to live in Florida, Jupiter prides itself in catering to its residents’ every need and preference. Home to a dense suburban feel and a distinctly laid-back atmosphere, locals enjoy socializing on the nearby beaches or in one of the many coffee shops or parks dotted throughout the neighborhood. The town is also a popular destination for watersports lovers as the community is bordered to the north by the Loxahatchee River and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.
Thanks to Jupiter’s energetic, involved community, the town has developed several excellently rated restaurants, shopping centers, and entertainment venues. A firm favorite among locals, Downtown Abacoa is one of the community’s social epicenters and plays host to an outdoor shopping and dining experience, as well as several family-friendly activities. Besides several Mexican and Italian eateries, visitors enjoy access to an 18-hole adventure mini-golf course, escape rooms, numerous fitness centers, and a spa.

If a more casual venue is in order, Duffy’s Sports Grill is especially popular among locals for their all-day happy hour and range of live sports screenings to choose from.
