Jupiter’s most famous landmark is the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. The lighthouse has been through several difficult situations, including a 2004 hurricane that blew sand hard enough to remove paint from the top portion of the lighthouse. This landmark is a slender, tall reddish-brown lighthouse with a black top, and it is frequently used as a symbol or a logo of sorts for the town of Jupiter.
