Location. Location. Location. That’s not the only reason Jupiter is the fastest growing community in Palm Beach County.
Here’s six reasons behind the U.S. Census announcement:
Even during the recession, home values in Abacoa and other parts of the town stayed strong.
From boating to hiking to bicycling, Jupiter has many ways to get outside and have a good time. And those activities drive the local economy.
Not only is Roger Dean Stadium the spring training home to the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals, the 7,000-seat field in Abacoa is home to the Jupiter Hammerheads and the Palm Beach Cardinals. Summer baseball camps are held at the park. There’s the public Abacoa Golf Club.
Scripps Research Institute and Max Planck Florida Institute are doing state-of-the-art medical research. The Jupiter Medical Center, the town largest employer, is in the midst of a big expansion. Several new residential developments are being built. There’s even a brewery opening this summer in Abacoa – Jupiter’s first.
Florida Atlantic University is located on Donald Ross Road. The Lifelong Learning Society offers free classes.
The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum has displays about the town’s significant role in World War II. The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area is a federally protected public area around the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, which is open to the public. Free walking tours of military sites during the Seminole Wars are held regularly at Riverbend/Loxahatchee River Battlefield Park.
