Treasure Coast North Palm Beach County Jupiter Island Jupiter Today
Jupiter's Treasure Coast

This is perhaps the most perfectly located region in Florida.

Located a few miles south of the imaginary line that divides Florida's Treasure Coast from its southern neighbor, the legendary Gold Coast, Ocean Parks offers its residents easy access to the world-class entertainment, diversions, recreation and amenities that these internationally acclaimed regions offer. According to Florida governmental statistics, Palm Beach [as well as Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River Counties] are included in the area known as Treasure Coast Planning District 10, while local area residents and Chambers of Commerce insist that the Treasure Coast begins immediately south of the Martin/Palm Beach County line. However, no matter where you believe Florida's southernmost "Coasts" begin and end, both of them legitimately derive their names from the tens of millions of dollars in pirate treasure and shipwreck booty discovered over the last century and, although these inseparable neighbors share a common heritage, the two "coasts" have distinctly different personalities.

Based on the area residents' widely held belief that the Treasure Coast ends at the southern border of Martin County, the Gold Coast extends from upper most Palm Beach County down through Broward County to Key Biscayne and the rich agricultural areas, small towns and emerging cities of southernmost Dade County. For an Ocean Parks resident, the lure, mystery, cultural attractions and myriad array of international excitements of a day's or evening's sojourn to Miami and the rest of the southern Gold Coast's metropolitan areas are less than 90 minutes via I-95 or Florida's Turnpike from the suburban tranquility and comforts of home.

Palm Beach County provides a less hectic environment than its southern neighbors of Broward and Dade counties, yet offers all the world class cultural, health care, recreational, shopping, and professional facilities and amenities you could ever want or need.

Ocean Parks is close to many of the finest recreational and cultural facilities in all of Florida. Surrounded by almost 3,500 holes of golf in the 2-county area, Ocean Parks is within 15 minutes of 25 very exciting golf courses, and 10-25 minutes from a cornucopia of tantalizing pleasures, excitements, conveniences, diversions and necessities. And, with a year 'round temperature that averages 74.1, cold weather is almost never a factor when you're planning your activities.

North Palm Beach County

People tend to think of the area north of the Jupiter Inlet as being on the Treasure Coast while the area to the south is commonly referred to as the Gold Coast. In terms of trading areas, county lines tend to be invisible when people go about their daily business. People travel back and forth among the counties of the Treasure Coast to jobs, schools, hospitals, shopping centers, restaurants, cultural and sports events.

Because of its many assets, Northern Palm Beach County is one of the fastest growing areas of Palm Beach County. Prospective residents and visitors alike are drawn to its many waterways and ocean inlets, plentiful golf courses, beaches and parks. It has good schools and first-class health care facilities. Shopping is excellent due in part to major regional malls such as The Gardens of the Palm Beaches and Oakbrook Square which are within an easy drive.

For cultural opportunities, the area excels and includes art centers, galleries and theaters. Visitors looking for the good life find reasons to look for a new home. It's an appealing area in which to live and work, retire or vacation.

Jupiter Island and Jupiter Inlet Colony

One of the most desirable areas of the entire east coast is the area directly north of the Jupiter Inlet, between the Intracoastal waterway, and the Atlantic Ocean. The southern end is made up of single family homes, and is known as Jupiter Inlet Colony. Continuing north are the condos of Jupiter Island, offering privacy, and breathtaking views of the blue Atlantic. On to the north, are the luxury estates of the rich, but maybe not so famous, and very low key. Some estates are both Intracoastal and oceanfront...the best of both waters!

The Jupiter Area
Jupiter is rich in history. Famous for its beautiful beaches, landmark lighthouse and crystal clear blue water, the town enjoys a vibrant cultural life as the home of the Florida History Center and Museum and several annual arts and entertainment festivals.

Probably no other location on the East Coast of the United States enjoys the international reputation for guiding ships throughout the centuries as does the area now known as Jupiter. Jupiter is the kind of place you want to call home; an inviting mix of small-town charm and surprising sophistication. Come on home to Ocean Parks and live the Florida lifestyle you so richly deserve.

Not only is Jupiter the oldest but also it may be the most well-known city on the Treasure Coast due, in part, to the abundance of waterways and parks in the town. Jupiter is destined to attract even more attention with the new 2,055-acre Abacoa project near Donald Ross Road and Military Trail that includes a Florida Atlantic University campus and a professional baseball stadium.

Jupiter has long been a vacation or a second home destination for people. When vast acres of former MacArthur Foundation land were developed in the 1980's and 1990's, the golf and yacht club communities of Admirals Cove, Jonathan's Landing and Frenchman's Creek emerged, attracting residents in search of an upscale lifestyle. Also, having discovered an ideal place to raise children, more young, affluent families began to move into Jupiter.
