Successful Jupiter business owner Rob Thomson suggests a trio of fun things to do this winter in the popular South Florida coastal town.


Spring, summer, fall, or winter, there’s no shortage of fun things to do in Jupiter, Florida, whatever the time of year. That’s according to successful local businessman and entrepreneur Rob Thomson as he suggests three fun activities to enjoy in Jupiter this winter. 


“With countless hidden waterways, beautiful beaches, and miles and miles of trails for hiking, cycling, and horseback riding, Jupiter is a fantastic place to explore,” says Thomson, a Jupiter native and the owner of a highly successful real estate business based in the popular coastal town, located approximately 85 miles north of Miami, Florida.  


Thomson starts with the Jupiter sound, a local ocean inlet. “You can paddleboard or kayak the Jupiter sound either by renting a kayak or paddleboard from the Jupiter Outdoor Center or using your own equipment,” explains Rob. “Because of the weather,” he goes on, “now’s the ideal time to explore the Jupiter sound ocean inlet.” 


This, according to Thomson, is because as ocean temperatures cool during winter, manatees from all around migrate to the warmer waters of the Jupiter sound. “As such, there’s rarely a better time to see a whole bunch of manatees,” he explains, “including many snuggled together for warmth.” 


Next, Thomson turns to Carlin Park. “Carlin Park, Jupiter, is the perfect place for snorkeling,” suggests the Jupiter native. “Carlin Park prohibits boats for safe snorkeling,” Rob reveals, “and, therefore, no dive flag is required.”


To get started snorkeling at Carlin Park, all you need, Thomson says, is to pack your gear, then walk straight out to the reef. 


Third among Rob Thomson’s suggestions for winter fun in Jupiter is Blowing Rocks Preserve. “Just minutes from Jupiter, there’s the chance to go cave diving at the Nature Conservancy’s Blowing Rocks Preserve,” he explains, “which is home to the largest outcropping of the famous Anastasia limestone formation that lines Jupiter Island.”


“During low tide, you’re free to explore the incredible open-air caves,” adds Thomson, wrapping up, “created over tens of thousands of years or more by waves crashing against, and breaking down, the famous limestone rockwork.”


Rob Thomson has previously spoken at length about the joys of Riverbend Park in Jupiter, the town’s Cinépolis Luxury Cinema, his favorite places for ice cream, Sundays at Jupiter’s Harbourside Place, and much more.
