U-Tiki Beach Waterfront Restaurant
It’s not a real vacation until you’ve eaten some fine cuisine. Jupiter has several fine dining restaurants, and we encourage you to eat well every day of your staycation. We recommend the U-Tiki Beach Waterfront Restaurant. The view, especially on a clear night, is beautiful. The food and service are both excellent. The only downside is that they don’t take reservations, so go early.

Sometimes staying in town and enjoying local tourism is all we need to relax and rejuvenate. It’s cheaper, and you don’t have to deal with the process of packing a heavy suitcase. Just throw in a few things in your backpack or duffel bag, and you’re off to go.
