Jupiter Harbourside is a happening spot with a sunken amphitheater that serves as the central, colorful hangout spot. Here at night brightly lit fountains gurgle, or in the day the sun shines while kids run in a splash pad. BurgerFi (try the yummy veggie burgers made of Quinoa! Or for dessert, try the chocolate custard soft serve ice cream) is a great place to go with its lime green seating outside and vintage lighting inside. The Jupiter Grill is a large restaurant in a good location by the canal and the beautiful stage area. Live music at the amphitheater adds to the fun feeling. Come on a Friday night (about once a month), usually 7-10pm, for tons of happy people and a great vibe. They also have a waterfront market on Sundays from 10-4 (not in summer).
Harbourside has everything you could need! There are benches galore looking out on the water, including rocking benches that kids adore. Walkways lead past palm trees and pink hibiscus to docks where you can watch the boats, kayakers, and paddle boarders go happily by.
The architecture is modern and tropical, with Caribbean pastel colors. There is a coffee shop called Subculture Coffee Culture. It is hard to spot but it faces the street, around the corner from the entrance. It is a very popular spot, with steam pump decor that is very interesting! It has loud music and lots of young people with laptops. Their chocolate croissants are delicious. There is also a Mexican restaurant, seafood restaurant, and Tommy Bahama Restaurant looking out on the water.
After your meal, take a long walk along the water (this can get confusing in some spots as the path abruptly stops and there are no signs to show you where to go next). Extend your walk by continuing under the bridge on Coastal Way, past mangroves and little gazebos on the river, past Cafe des Artistes, along the docks of Jupiter Yacht Club to the end of the docks and then over the lagoon bridge. A winding walkway takes you past mangroves and tropical vegetation (some of the older hotels are an eyesore here). Bring a friend because some parts of the walk are deserted. The walk takes you all the way to Jupiter Ridge Natural Area where you find a forest with white sandy floor and little strange fluffy things that grow beneath the trees, plus a beach on the intracoastal called Ski Beach.
The beginning of the Riverwalk is great for baby strollers as it is all nicely paved.
Over the bridge, on Indiantown Rd, there is a nice Starbucks with lovely outdoor seating under fans, looking out on bright green palms. Next door to it is Modern Juice, a juicer and acai bowl place with beautiful photos by local artists. Fresh Market, also in this shopping center, has some nice gourmet foods and plants.
Nearby check out Carlin Beach where you can lay on the sand or your child can play on the playground.

The city has responded- they are currently working on creating signs!)
I have contacted the city so hopefully some signs will be added. )
Yes, that's true. There were parts of the walkway where no signs show you where to go next. )
The route is unmarked and impossible to follow , it requires a comprehensive map to be made and or markers ion the side walk)
