Dubois Park is the place to go to enjoy the beach (something you should absolutely do in this area). If you’re looking for something a little extra, you will be pleased to also find a playground, picnic area, and fishing pier. This is the ideal place to spend the day with your family and make lots of memories!

Harbourside Place

After you spend the day at the beach, you may be looking for a place to shop, dine and take in the sights of Jupiter. Harbourside Place is the perfect choice! This ritzy area will offer multiple fine-dining options, and if you’re feeling really fancy, some great areas for yacht-watching. We mostly just walked around and enjoyed the views.
